The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arrested persons suspected to be engaged in vote-buying in the ongoing Ekiti State governorship poll.
The suspects were reported to have been caught with monies allegedly used to induce voters, an act the EFCC officials say was carried out surreptitiously.
Channels TV reports that some of the suspects were paraded at the Oke Ori Omi Area the Division of the Nigeria Police Force.
The EFCC thereafter proceeded to burst into another residence where some persons were caught with a book containing details of voters of a certain voting area.
The election is ongoing across the 16 local government areas of the state. Although there are 16 candidates in the election, it is a battle, essentially, among three parties – the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC); the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP); and the SDP.
