Massive vote-buying has been witnessed at Ward 6, polling 002, Ekpri Obio Abakpa, Bakassi LGA, there is massive vote-buying by APC party Agents where they pay voters N500 to vote for the party.
Meanwhile, in the process of sharing the money, misunderstanding set in. A pastor’s wife by Mrs. Eneanwan Godwin of Church of Christ (the venue for the polling unit) who stepped in to intervene, was pushed down and she lost consciousness in a jiffy.
Security men are standing aloof observing the scene, none intervened as at the time of filing this report.
Relatively, at Ekpri Ikang Primary school, ward 12, polling unit 012, there is mass voter apathy. Also, there is no provision for voting cubicles.
In several polling units, APC agents shared money, snacks, and soft drinks with voters and security personnel.
