The rampaging thugs also destroyed chairs and tables used by officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission and attempted to seize the BVAS machine.

Though there was resistance from the residents and some of the thugs were overpowered, the timely arrival of the Nigerian Army to the scene helped to save the day.

The thugs were arrested and subsequently taken away by the Army in their patrol van.

Our correspondent observed that before the violence occurred, no policeman or security personnel was on the ground.

However, an hour after the incident took place, policemen from the Ejigbo Police Division drove into the street leading to the polling unit and later drove off.
