A Nigerian man has taken to Twitter to share his terrible experience at his polling unit in Ojodu Berger, Lagos State, during the governorship election today, March 18
He revealed that thugs stormed the polling unit and started threatening voters to go home if they are not planning to vote for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He alleged that they called him an “Omo Igbo” and attacked him, his brother, and an elderly woman, whom they presumably mistook for an Igbo woman.
He said they resisted the thugs as much as they could and sustained injuries in the process. According to him, he eventually had to leave the polling unit for his safety.
Sharing photos of his injuries, he wrote, “INEC is useless. Everything I did, i did for my conscience.”
