Party agent arrested with N3.2m cash in Lagos

In the Lagos neighbourhood of Oshodi, a party agent was detained with N3.2 million in cash.

This happened right after a woman who claimed to be a ward leader in Lagos’ Ejigbo neighbourhood was detained beside a herbalist on the Isolo/Egbe road.

According to reports, several military officers on patrol who had been informed about the intimidation of voters by thugs were en route to respond to the distress call when they stopped some people in one of the Oshodi pooling units.

The military troops were drawn to the bag of one of the unnamed agents and demanded to know what was inside.

The party agent (names omitted) reluctantly opened the bag, where it was found to be filled with naira notes.

According to report, one of the Military patrol teams attended to not less than 24 distress calls between 8.30 am and 1.30 pm, from different polling units in Oshodi, Jakande Estate, Ejigbo, Ajao and Oke- Afa areas of the state.

One of the distress calls received from Igala estate on the Isolo/Egbe road, had a report of a voter whose skull was broken by a thug.

While attending another one at the Borokini hall, on the same axis at about 11.45 am, a tricycle in which three passengers were flagged down.

While one of the occupants, a woman whose identity could not be immediately ascertained claimed she was on her way to her ward in Ejigbo, others simply said they were going to vote.

However, when the two men were searched, one of them was discovered to have guarded his waist with kneaded charms.

Upon further inquiry, the self-acclaimed Ward leader said she hired the service of the herbalist and the other passenger to accompany her to her ward.

Three of them were whisked away in the Military patrol van.

Some suspected thugs were also arrested.
