Imo election: Vigilante operatives prevent kidnapping of INE

Members of the Nigerian Vigilante security in Imo have thwarted plans to abduct INEC officials and cart away the election in today's polls.

The incident occurred at a registration centre in Amaimo, Ikeduru Local Government Area.

Reports say some political thugs attempted to take away the INEC officials into their waiting vehicle but were quickly repelled by the security personnel deployed in the centre.

An eyewitness account said that the armed security operatives fired into the air from a distance when voters in the area raised an alarm over the presence of the thugs.

“The thugs quickly retreated into their bus and sped off on hearing the sound of the gun,” a source told NAN.
