Peter Obi,  the vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has alleged that he was harassed by security operatives.

The former governor of Anambra state stated on Saturday after casting his vote in his ward in Agulu, Anambra state.

Asked to confirm the news that some PDP chieftains were harassed and “probably whisked away” on Friday evening, Obi said yes.

“Most of them were harassed including myself,” he said, adding: “Yes, it happened. It spells trouble for the country.”

He also faulted the electoral process which he described as “clumsy”.

He said although it takes time to get accredited and vote, it is “too early” to comment on the general election.

“The system is still a bit clumsy. You were here and you saw the time it took me; some of the things were not proper including the ink,” he said.
