Similarly, voters across Orolu community in Disu Oke-Odo area, ward 7, Kajola road on Thursday were allegedly stopped by people suspected to be political thugs.

The thugs were said to be fully armed and were shooting sporadically in order to scare and prevent voters from reaching their polling units.

Hon. Oludele Adesoye, former supervisory Counsellor for Education in Orolu, told newsmen that his people were chased away by some unknown thugs who were armed with heavy weapons.

Adesoye said, “My people came out as at 6:00 am heading to their polling units but immediately we heard gun shots and later we saw armed guys coming from the bush.”

“We had to escape for our lives and that was why you saw us here and trying to find our way to the polling units, ” he said.
