Tope Oshin

Prior to the controversial supplementary governorship Election in Kogi State, the office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was razed down by some thugs in Dekina, Dekina local government area of the state.

Out of the 91 polling units, where the election was supposed to take place, 29 units are in Dekina.

According to eyewitnesses, some thugs invaded the office at about 5:00am and set it on fire in anger in the early hours of Friday.

One of the eyewitnesses said: “The thugs came in a bus, shot sporadically and razed down the office.”

It was not immediately clear if the voting materials for Saturday’s poll had been taken to the INEC office or not.
