Ekiti Decides: APC agent threatens to ‘cut off’ fingers of whoever votes against Fayemi

#EkitiDecides2018: Impressive turn out as electorates decide next Ekiti governor
Voters exercising their civil responsibilities in Ekiti
Voting process was disrupted briefly in polling unit 012 of Igbemo Ward in Irepodun-Ifelodun Local Government Area when a non-uniformed party agent stormed the venue to campaign for his party.
The man who was simply identified as Kazeem stormed the polling unit at about 9 a.m. when voting was already underway.
Mr Kazeem speaking in local dialect charged the electorates on the queue to vote for the APC
candidate, Kayode Fayemi.
Shouting on top of his voice, he threatened to cut off the fingers of anyone who does otherwise.
“Vote for APC. Whoever votes for PDP will have his fingers cut off,” he said repeatedly.
The action infuriated another electorate who charged at Mr Kazeem.
Obviously loyal to PDP, Mr Ojo who was on the queue to vote as at the time, challenged Mr Kazeem.
To drive home his confrontation, he picked a plank and charged towards Mr Kazeem.
The confrontation disrupted voting process for a while. The polling unit was, however, brought back to normalcy by security operatives.
Residents said Mr Kazeem had earlier visited two other polling units with similar message. Those other occasions were not witnessed.
