The Governorship Candidate of Labour Party (LP) in Lagos State Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, has alleged that Saturday’s governorship poll in the state has been marred by voters’ intimidation, adding that there were cases of voter intimidation and harassment in areas like Ojo and Oshodi/Isolo.

“Since morning, we’ve been getting widespread reports on voters’ suppression, voters’ intimidation in places like Kosofe. At VGC, INEC officials are refusing to go into estates. They are telling estate people to come to the express road which is not a legal position for a polling unit to be. We have similar situations all over in Ikate, several places, Ojo, Computer Village I am hearing as well. We are dealing with it in our situation room’, he said.
Penpushing further reports that the Labour Party (LP) Candidate said he is not placing his confidence in the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) but rather in Lagos residents, stressing that he heard reports that the Biometric Voters Accreditation System (BVAS) machine for Osborne 2 estate in the state was preloaded with votes.
