Thugs Snatch Electoral Materials in Kogi.

Some armed thugs in police and army uniforms invaded polling units in Adankolo community in Lokoja, shooting sporadically to scare away voters on the queue.

A correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that the armed hoodlums arrived in a van and immediately started shooting.

Voters and electoral officers scampered to safety, a development which made it possible for the thugs to carry away ballot boxes, ballot papers and other sensitive election materials.

Worst hit were the five polling units at St Luke Primary School at Adankolo where materials at all the five polling units in the school premises were taken away.

Also at the Polling Unit in NEPA area in Lokoja, the hoodlums, some of whom were masked, also made away with election materials after scaring away INEC officials and voters.

Other areas under the siege of armed thugs were polling units in Ward A in Lokoja Constituency 1.

At Okengwe Polling Unit in Okene Local Government, voting was temporarily disrupted when hoodlums attempted to snatch ballot boxes and other election materials.

There had been fears about the possibility of armed attack on the election day among residents before now.

One of the candidates contesting for a seat in the state House of Assembly had earlier raised the alarm over plans by some elements to disrupt election in the ward.

The candidate, Mr Suleiman Babadoko of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), had appealed to the police and DSS to quickly move in to stop the violence.

  15. This design is spectacular! You most certainly know how
    to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was
    almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that,
    how you presented it. Too cool!

  16. Hi this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if
    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from
    someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  17. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. Nevertheless think of
    if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and video
    clips, this site could certainly be one of the very best in its field.
    Fantastic blog!
