It will be recalled that the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) had declared Godwin Obaseki of the All Progressives Congress(APC) the winner of the elections. The PDP has since rejected the results on the grounds that they were doctored, and therefore not representative of the true will of the people of Edo State.

Protester were seen carrying placards, one of which read “Return our stolen mandate to Pastor Ize-Iyamu”
