Gunmen suspected to be political thugs on Saturday have attacked a polling unit in Ayegbami, in the Ikenne Local Government Area of Ogun State, destroyed a ballot box and disrupted the electoral process in the area.
It was gathered that Ayegbami is a street in Iperu, Ikenne LGA, the hometown of the state governor, Dapo Abiodun.
An eyewitness said the thugs, who rode motorcycles, invaded the polling and snatched the ball box and destroyed it.
He said, “Ayegbami polling unit has been destroyed. The ballot box has been destroyed and the papers were scattered on the floor. I had to quickly walk away from the scene.”
It was gathered that immediately after the thugs disrupted the electoral process in the polling unit, they fled.
“Some boys came to the polling unit in Ayegbami, and destroyed the ballot box. The broken ballot box is on the road; they took all the ballot papers and fled. They were on motorcycles,” a resident said.
