POLITICS NIGERIA reports that INEC officials were nowhere to be found as of 10:12 am, and this left many eligible voters stranded until the thugs invaded the polling unit with daggers and other dangerous objects to disperse them.
“Policemen are also not present. The people have all run away and are not willing to return,” a source said.
