There was a mild drama at Polling Unit 24-03-03-132 on Orona Street, along Idimu-Ikotun road, Alimosho Local Government Area of Lagos State, when a yet-to-be-identified INEC supervisory polling officer tried to abscond with the result sheet even before voting commenced.

Speaking to FIJ, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) agent, who simply wished to be identified as Kehinde, said the voters present at the unit first noticed “something was not right” when the INEC ad-hoc staffer on the ground told everyone present that “voting would have to commence without a result sheet because none had been allocated to the unit”.

“When the INEC officials arrived at the polling unit, I asked one of them to show me the result sheet,” Kehinde said.

“She then told me that they did not come with any result sheet. After telling me this, she also faced the crowd to tell them that no result sheet had been made available for this particular unit.

“This was when the crowd revolted and said voting would not commence unless the result sheet was made available.”

As this reporter was speaking with Kehinde, the crowd suddenly saw the result sheet meant for the unit with a man whom the party agents present said was INEC’s supervisory polling officer for all the polling units in the area.

The voters immediately prevented him from leaving, forcing him to release it to them. The moment the result sheet was wrestled from him, he left the unit without saying a word.
