The duo were taken into custody on Monday morning over alleged disruption of the collation of governorship election results at Nassarawa local government area of the state.

Garo and Gawuna were reportedly rescued from aggrieved party agents and supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) before they were subsequently detained.

The development has led to a delay in the release of the final outcome of the state’s election.
