The  pro Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,  group  alleged that there was plot to trigger crisis in Urhobo area to rig the elections in favour of  one of the political parties.

It said: “Our message to the opposition is simple: Urhobo youths will not allow peace to be truncated in Delta State  because of elections. We shall stand against any plot and plotters of chaos in our state.

“All Urhobo youths are currently being sensitised and preparing to resist their plans to plunge Delta State into crisis because of their selfish interest.

“We have details of a plot to plunge Delta Central into crisis during the election as a precursor for Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to declare the election inconclusive and call for a rerun.”
