Spates of violence has been reported in a few areas in Lagos following the Local government council elections holding in Lagos under the severe rainfall.
Some suspected hoodlums have taken over some election units in Odi-Olowo local council development area of Lagos state, South west Nigeria

According The Sun News, witnesses said that the suspects chased away voters at unit 031 and hijacked the electoral materials.

A witness who spoke on condition of anonymity said: “I came down here to exercise my rights. We were patiently waiting in the queue when these people got here,” he said.

“They slapped the electoral official in charge of the unit and ordered him to bring out the ballot papers. As I speak to you they are busy thumb printing. I have also been informed that some other polling units in this area were affected.

“We were told that there would be enough security personnel on ground but nothing of such. I regret leaving my house to come here.”
