No fewer than 20 election officials in the Anambra governorship poll were attacked in the early hours of Sunday by armed robbery suspects along the Onitsha-Owerri Expressway.

One of the officials, who preferred anonymity, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Awka that they were attacked at about 3am while returning from Ihiala after the election.

The electoral officer said they were rescued by soldiers who were covering them from behind.

According to him, the suspects stopped them, but on sighting the security vehicle trailing behind, they took to their heels.

“Some of us had already jumped out of the vehicle, and the timely intervention of the soldiers saved us.

“As soon as the robbers saw other vehicles behind us in a convoy, they escaped into the bush.

“We thank God for saving us. I wonder what would have happened to us, if there was no adequate security,’’ he said.

He said that none of the officials was hurt, neither did they lose any of their belongings in the incident.
