Oyibo Chukwu, a lawyer, was killed and burnt alongside his assistant and other supporters along Amaechi-Agbani Road on February 22, barely three days to the elections on February 25.

Announcing the results in the presence of two Independent National Electoral Commission observers on Sunday in Enugu, the National Vice Chairman, South-East of Labour Party, Innocent Okeke, said that Chukwu scored 223 votes and his rivals did not score any vote.

Kelvin Chukwu will be going to the polls on the 11th of March alongside the former governor of Enugu State, Chimaroke Nnamani, who stands expelled by his party PDP, amongst other candidates.
