2023: Lafia Residents Protest Over Election Result

Protesters have taken to the streets of Lafia, the Nasarawa State capital protesting the results of the governorship election in the state.

The declaration of the election outcome has caused traffic gridlocks in the state capital.

The report according to Vanguard indicated that one person has been allegedly killed while several others have been injured at various degrees following the protest that turned violent in the state.

The protesters are on the streets to express their dissatisfaction with the outcome of the governorship results declared by the electoral umpire from last Saturday’s gubernatorial election in the state.

An eyewitness account told our correspondent that the protesters also engaged in acts of vandalism and destruction of public and private property.

Meanwhile, security agencies have been deployed to strategic locations to forestall the spread of violent protests and maintain law and order.

The incident has sparked up concerns and calls for transparent elections in Nigeria, with an appeal to the relevant authorities to address the underlying issues that provoked the protest.

Attempts to obtain confirmation from the police Command in the state proved abortive as the Public Relations Officer of the Command, DSP Ramham Nansel could not respond to text messages, pick up calls, or issue statements on the protest at the time of filling the report.
