Recall that there was confusion on Monday night at the venue of collation of results for the supplementary election held in Tafawa Balewa Local Government Area of Bauchi State as overzealous anti-riot police officers threw teargas canisters on party agents and journalists.

The reason for the action which also affected staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission, was not clear. But it had fuelled suspicion as agents of the two leading political parties, journalists and INEC personnel discussed the issue amidst cursing and jeers.
