Armed thugs shot indiscriminately and tried to snatch ballot boxes at the polling units opposite Bishop Delisle Catholic Cathedral in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports as at the time of filing this report, that some hoodlums in fake Police and Army uniforms scared away voters at the polling units.
A staff of the Justice, Development and Peace Commission, Mr. Sunday Adwjoh, told NAN that many people from Karaworo polling station ran into the church premises for safety.
Adwjoh, who spoke on phone, said, “As we are talking, all of us are lying down to escape being hit by stray bullets.”
