Some officers of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, allegedly stormed polling unit 9, ward 10 at Ilupeju along Ikere -Ado Expressway in Ikere Ekiti, in Ikere Local Government Area of Ekiti State and took away a huge sum of money from some politicians in the unit.
According to PUNCH, a voter in the unit, who spoke on condition of anonymity said that the undisclosed amount of money hijacked by the security men was meant to buy votes from the voters in the area.
He said some of the voters who had voted for their candidate in the unit left in annoyance as they were not able to collect money for the ‘work’ done.
He said, “They (NSCDC officers) stormed this unit and harassed the person holding the money. They collected the money from him and took it away. We that have voted for APC and waiting to collect our money could not get the money. It is disappointing. We were told that the money is over N2million.
He added that the other voters who intended to sell their votes to the ruling party collected money from another party and voted for them.”
It was gathered that when the Speaker of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, Funminiyi Afuye, was informed about the development and rushed down to the unit, with his security aides, to see what actually happened.
On why he was at the unit, which is not his own unit during the voting period, Afuye said as the Speaker of the state assembly, he had the right to move around to monitor how the process was going.
He said,” I have voted in my unit and I was just going round to see if there is one problem or the other, but there is no crisis, no violence. People can just stampede because they want to vote, instead of them to line up and spend less time but they may crowd a place and you know that is part of our culture. But the people have been conducting themselves well.
“By virtue of my position as the chief lawmaker of the state, the moment I don’t go and tampered with whatever they are doing, I’m observing, there is no problem. The only time I went there is when they said they wanted to confirm the number of the machines that’s all.
The speaker also claimed oblivious of the vote-buying money allegedly snatched by the security agents, saying the alleged money was not from his party – All Progressives Congress.
“I am not aware of that, I wasn’t here then, and if they were snatching money, they are not snatching from my party. No violence has been reported to me.”
The State NSCDC Public Relations Officer, Afolabi Tolulope, said he was not aware of such incident as he was yet to get to the office
