“The ballot boxes were snatched and everybody ran away. Thugs are still hanging around the area.”
Confiming the violence, a popular Twitter user, identified as Samuel Otigba, who voted in the polling unit inside the palace wrote, “The vote outside the palace was scattered by area boys. Ballot box jacked. Chased the presiding officer away.
“They just physically assaulted @EditiEffiong because he was videoing the whole thing. He tried running into the palace when they saw & chased him but they locked the gate. This is madness. The police officers here just stood & did nothing. They took his phone and deleted the video.
“Was outside when they chased and assaulted @EditiEffiong, tried recording but they are beating anyone recording here & taking your phone if they spot you. Area dey hot.”
