Election Tribunal Reportedly Under Attack by thugs

Reports have emerged that the governorship tribunal in Abeokuta, Nigeria, is under attack by suspected thugs.

Eyewitnesses have reported that over 100 thugs armed with sticks and other harmful objects have been preventing opposition party members from accessing the court premises.

Despite heavy security presence, the thugs have been beating up perceived opposition members and even journalists.

The tribunal is expected to determine the true winner of the March 18 governorship election, which is being challenged by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Ladi Adebutu.

Adebutu has asked the tribunal to direct the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a fresh election in 99 polling units across the state, alleging that elections were either not held or cancelled due to disruptions and over-voting.
