The United Kingdom has expressed concern over reports of military interference in the governorship and state assembly elections in Rivers state that held on Saturday.

In a tweet via @UKinNigeria’s verified handle, the high commission said officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) must be allowed to do their job.  

The commission said it is monitoring the situation closely. 

Extremely concerned by reports, including from our observers, of military interference in the election process in Rivers State. Monitoring the situation closely. @inecng staff must be allowed to do their job in safety, without intimidation.
