A victim identified as Yusuf Olanrewaju told Vanguard how a bottle was smashed on his head.

According to him, “My polling unit at Ijegun Primary School. Some thugs came and disrupted the process, even when counting had not begun. I went forward trying to stop them when about three vehicles drove and a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) (name withheld) held me and called the thug to bottle me.”

Another victim, who gave her name as Cynthia also told Vanguard that there was no election in Lagos State but war. According to her, “the thugs came to our polling unit when the counting had just begun and Labour Party was in the lead.

“Some men trooped in and told the electoral officers to stop counting and close the voting box, but some of us refused and bottle was splashed by these thugs.”
