According to Punch, “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.”

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, Mr Funminiyi Afuye, was informed about the development and rushed down to the unit, with his security aides, to see what happened.”

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 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,” he noted.
