Gunmen Invade Polling Units In Rivers State and Cart Away Ballot Boxes

A polling unit in Bonny local government, Rivers State got invaded by over 20 gunmen who shot sporadically into the air and carted away ballot boxes, looted and robbed electoral officers.

National Youth Service Corps members working as ad hoc staff for INEC barely escaped death as they scrambled for safety.


As at the time of this report, the unit is deserted, everyone has scampered for safety.

A similar incident was reported in the Ikota Area of Lagos today.


Suspected thugs and ballot boxes snatchers were reported to have invade a polling unit in the area and made away with the ballot boxes after threatening the lives of the voters and INEC staff at the unit.
