#EdoDecides: Thugs assault election observers

20160928_080048

But for a quick security intervention, the safety of some election observers would have been jeopardized, as thugs tried to disrupt voting activities at Unit 26 and 27 at Iduenbo Ward, Orhiowon Local Government Area.

The scene of the skirmish was not far from Iguododo, the village of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

Officials of Cleen Foundation were at the unit to observe the election when they observed some of the thugs create a scene.

As they tried to take pictures, the thugs assailed them, but they fled in their vehicle unwittingly leaving one of them behind.

One of the officials, Chigo Okoro, told PREMIUM TIMES that the thugs pursued them until they got to Iguododo. He said they were rescued by officials of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps.

The security officials immediately escorted the observers back to the scene of the crisis to secure the life of the Cleen official left behind.

When PREMIUM TIMES got to the unit, calm had returned.
