 Abuja: Nigeria`s electoral commission on Monday hit back at US and British fears of political interference in the country`s general election, saying there was "no evidence" of party meddling in the count.

Independent National Electoral Commission spokesman Kayode Idowu said "there is absolutely no basis" to talk of interference after a warning from Secretary of State John Kerry and his British counterpart Philip Hammond.

"There is no interference at all. We are about to start the collation process. We have no evidence of political interference," Idowu said.
