The Governorship candidate of the Labour Party in the just concluded Imo state Governorship election Athan Achonu has accused security operatives of colluding with the ruling All Progressives Congress to manipulate the result in the state.

Achonu placed third with 64,081 votes as compared to Samuel Anyanwu of the Peoples Democratic Party with 71,503 and the eventual winner, the incumbent governor, Hope Uzodimma who won by a large vote tally of 540,308.

Addressing newsmen in his country home in Ehime Mbano local government area of Imo state, the 64-year-old  alleged his party supporters and voters were intimidated and harassed during the election as the outcome of the election doesn’t reflect what truly transpired at the polling units.
