The office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Agege local government area of Lagos state was attacked by Gunmen early Saturday morning.
The incident occurred around 12 midnight according to a staffer.
The Cable quoted the staffer as saying that the attackers also injured some persons and fired shots into the house of Kayode Opeifa, the state commissioner for transportation. A vehicle belonging to Opeifa was also said to be vandalised during the operation.
He said: “We were just right here in our unit at State High School when we heard sound of gunshots, some bullets even landed on our roof.
“The security man quickly shut the gates and briefed us that some guys who rode on bikes were the ones responsible.
“They first of all attacked the residence of the commissioner, which is opposite the school and vandalised one of his vehicles parked outside his compound. Then they moved to the secretariat of Agege local government and destroyed properties in the staff quarters before attacking the INEC office, which shares a fence with the secretariat but I can’t say if they succeeded in carting away electoral materials.”
The Cable reports further,
The official said he called one of his colleagues at the affected centre and was told that some of the voters who decided to spend the night at the place in order to be able to cast their vote early in the morning were also attacked.
He disclosed that the council manager had to put a call through to security agents who arrived moments after the men had left.
