Ekiti Guber: EFCC Arrests Persons Engaged In Vote Buying

Some persons alleged to have been engaged in vote buying in the Ekiti governorship election, have been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The anti-graft agency is one of the security agencies deployed to monitor the election.

Parading some of the suspects at the Oke Ori Omi Area Division of the Nigerian Police Force, the suspects were said to have been caught with monies allegedly used to induce voters, an act the EFCC officials say were carried out surreptitiously.

The EFCC thereafter proceeded to burst another residence where some persons were caught with a book containing details of voters of certain voting area.

SWITCH NIGERIA had earlier sighted a video of one of the youth leaders in Ekiti State, who claimed he had seen some party agents inducing and paying voters N10k for them to vote their party.
