Women in Akwanga Local Government Area of Nasarawa State, on Friday, stripped themselves half-naked to protest the outcome of the governorship election in the state.
The women, who were in their black attires, had placards emblazoned with different inscriptions, and claimed their mandate was stolen, noting that their votes must count.
They equally insisted that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) must revert the result of the governorship in Nasarawa in the interest of peace.
Women protesters demanded among other things the cancellation of the governorship election.
The protesters who marched around major streets of Akwanga topless also alleged rigging of the governorship election by INEC in the state and the declaration of results causing traffic gridlock.
They were escorted by the security agencies deployed to forestall the breakdown of law and order in the local government area.
It is understood that tension has continued to mount in Lafia and some parts of the State following alleged rigging of the governorship election on March 18.
Naija News reports that Governor Abdullahi Sule of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was returned as the winner of the election after defeating the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, David Umbugadu, with a 64,193 margin.
