Thugs on Saturday invaded some polling units and disrupted the election process in some polling units in Lagos.

At Ward D, Igando/Ikotun, they chased away voters in the queue.

The Vanguard reports that the thugs also chased away the voters with sticks and knives at the polling units located at Ijegun Community School.

The polling units include 096, 116, 281, 094, 095 and 084.

The thugs reportedly came to the polling units on motorcycles.

The attack compelled some voters to jump the school’s fence for safety.

Also, at Polling Unit 227, located at Awonisi Gate on Ijegamo Road, the thugs also beat up a lady who tried to take their picture.

They allegedly took her phones and her automated teller machine cards.

They also beat up and wounded a man who attempted to challenge them.

The voters, including accredited ones, did not return to the polling units at press time, even after the thugs left.

Recently, the Lagos State Parks Management Committee Chairman, Musiliu Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo, threatened those who won’t be voting for the APC in the state, telling them to stay at home.

MC Oluomo had said, “We have begged them. If they don’t want to vote for us, it doesn’t call for a fight. Iya Chukwudi, if you don’t want to vote for us, stay at home.”
