Persons wearing a tag each, with “APC agent” boldly inscribed on them, during the local government elections on Saturday, carted away ballot box and ballot papers at Tudun Fulani Jamade polling unit, Ungogo Local Government area of Kano State.

Only two people were allowed to vote before they carted away the election materials.

By the time they returned around 11:30pm, they announced that the election was over.

The APC agents then left with the election officials.

One of them was heard saying since people will not come out to vote, “we’ve done it for them and the election is over. We are done.”

Similarly, at a polling unit in Brigade, Gama ward of Nassarawa Local Government Area, massive thumbprinting of ballot papers were observed.

People were seen thumbprinting on all the papers in an open space while threatening journalists to refrain from taking pictures or videos.

Similar scenario also played out at the Kafin Agur ward.

Efforts to get reactions from the APC and KANSIEC were unsuccessful as of the time of filing this report.
