While ballot box snatching and burning of electoral materials in Okota, Ago, Aguda area of Lagos on Saturday were widely reported, Oshodi and Mafoluku witnessed a kind of intelligent way of ballot box snatching, intimidation and disfranchisement.

Sources privy to this what was described by voters as atrocities in the area narrated how the thugs in white Toyota Sienna cars paraded the areas at the commencement of collation in polling units.

Eyewitnesses who confided in The Guardian said the thugs parked in strategic locations in the area, send their members to witness the outcome of the process across polling units at about 4pm when counting was taking place and return with information on who is leading, wherever the main opposition leads, they approach the centre, point gun at the officials and cart away the ballots.

The Guardian went round while voting was ongoing and spot men in car with the sticker of INEC On Duty, with some of the vehicle tainted.

Eye witnesses said the hoodlums came in with thugs in some of the area and forcefully dispersed voters, INEC officials and security operatives with weapons.

A man whose name was not made available to The Guardian was said to be on the bus convening material to the INEC headquarters in Lagos in which the gun wielding hoodlums trailed the vehicle and ordered the officials to step out of the car and cart away the votes.

Speaking on the election, member of Lagos State House of Assembly representing Oshodi-Isolo Constituency 1, Hakeem Olusola Sokunle who spoke on the violence in the area, said, “I was told and I don’t know why they didn’t inform us on time because it would have been the best opportunity to call on the task force to get the perpetrators arrested.
