broadcast that the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) presidential
candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, had won the election in Adamawa
State, when the electoral commission in the state was still collating results.

The Special Adviser to the Adamawa State Governor, Aminu Iyawa, told

chaos. He said violence erupted after the electoral commission announced
