According to Emmanuella Okoye who gave an eye witness account, voting was going on when thugs armed with metal objects and sticks stormed the election venue in motorcycles and tricycles forcing everyone to take to their heels while they destroyed eection materials.
In her words:
These was the Polling Unit before hoodlums came and Violently destroyed the Electoral Process. (See the video in my last post). Happening in Amukoko! Ajeronmi Ifelodun Local Government. Lagos State. Citizens(Electorates) ran for their dear lives. I ran too. Almost all the Polling Units in that area were affected. I am just angry that Elections can’t be peaceful in this Country. Why the disruption? People shoud be allowed to exercise their franchise without threats. This is totally condemnable. I hate that this is happening. It’s a shame.
