Three persons feared killed, as thugs attack voters at Senator Biodun Olujimi’s polling unit in Ekiti state.
This is as the Independent National Electoral Commission suspended Saturday’s bye-election to fill the vacant seat of Ekiti East Constituency 1 in the State House of Assembly.
The new development was confirmed by the INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner, Dr. Tella Adeniran, in a statement in Ado-Ekiti.
He said the commission suspended the poll following the violence unleashed on voters and officials of the electoral body by political thugs.
He explained that the election was peaceful until arm-wielding hoodlums stormed two polling units of ward 009 unit 008 and 009 and started shooting sporadically.
This development, the INEC boss, said led to the death of three voters while a police officer, Corps member and one of its staff sustained varying degrees of injuries.
