Ondo Decides: Drama As Ballot Box Snatchers Are Arrested at Ilaje
Security agents keeping vigil in the ongoing governorship election in Ondo State have arrested some suspected hoodlums at Igbokoda, Ilaje, for allegedly snatching ballot boxes.
Police officials said the suspects were chased from interior communities to the Igbokoda jetty where they were arrested.
They were taken to a police station where the Divisional Police Officer, DPO, declined to speak to journalists.
However, the spokesperson of the police in the state said he has not been briefed on the arrest, promising to get back to journalists on the matter.
Although the election is progressing with little violence, unknown gunmen killed a chieftain of the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC, Afolabi Olaposi, on Thursday night in Owo town.
In preparation for the election, the Nigeria Police Force deployed 26,000 personnel, three helicopters, 12 Armoured Personnel Carriers (APCs) and 20 gunboats to Ondo State.
The civil defence corps also deployed about 15,000 of its personnel.
PREMIUM TIMES reporters in Ondo confirmed high presence of security officials in voting units and strategic locations across the state.
