The deputy governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Adekunle Akinlade, has raised the alarm over the invasion of polling units by armed thugs.

Akinlade spoke at his hometown in Agosasa after casting his vote.

According to him, there have been reports of shooting and ballot box snatching in some polling units in Ogun East.

Akinlade expressed displeasure that security agents who were supposed to avert the situation did nothing, giving the thugs a field day.

” It’s unfortunate, my phones have been ringing since morning. I have seen photos and videos. We were informed that members of the opposition party have become very violent. There is someone called Efele or something who has been carrying thugs all around. They went straight into polling units to attack people. They shot in the air, carted away ballot papers and other INEC materials.

“Shockingly, we were told that there are security personnel just standing and watching this happen. It’s quite sad for our democracy that this is happening in Ogun East. We thought Ogun East was supposed to be more peaceful being the home of the sitting governor. It is most embarrassing for us in Ogun State, what we are witnessing in this election,” he said.
