During the Saturday election, reports of electoral violence and misconducts fuelled the internet. Some were reports where Igbos were being disenfranchised and some others, just simply disturbing. In all the madness from the Saturday election, INEC, Independent electoral commission, did nothing of any significance to address the situation. One begins to wonder what they did with the extra one week added to the preparation for the presidential election.
The police has confirmed the death of two persons after unknown gunmen opened fire at a polling unit in Amukpe, near Sapele in Delta state.
According to reports, the deceased were voters trying to cast their votes along Old Eku road Amukpe when the attack took place.
According to the police, the gunmen stormed the polling units when the voting was still ongoing and rained bullets at the voters leaving two persons dead on the spot while several others were badly injured.
Those injured were rushed to a nearby hospital where they are being tendered to.
The police say investigations are underway, assuring that those who carried out the attack will be apprehended.
