One Killed, Soldiers Allegedly Open Fire As Armed Thugs Hijack Ballot Boxes


Armed thugs, assisted by soldiers are said to have disrupted voting in Nembe Basambiri and Okoroba areas of Bayelsa State.



They were said to have stormed polling units in the areas shooting sporadically, killing one person in the process and injuring five others. They also allegedly hijacked ballot boxes and made away with them.

A candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Bayelsa East Senatorial district, Chief Ipigansi Izagara, raised the alarm this morning while election was ongoing.


He accused the opposition party in the state as supporters of the armed thugs, adding that PDP members were also being attacked in the state since 10pm on Friday.

“They have hijacked materials from our area with the assistance of soldiers.”
