The Governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole, says although the governorship election has been peaceful in his Ward, there have been reports of disturbances in some other areas.
The governor said this after voting at Unit 1, Ward 10, Iyamho Primary School in Etsako West Local Government Area of the state.
He said, “The people have accepted and are ready to celebrate democracy. There is no problem her in my area based on what I have seen now. But I have received information of stolen card readers and sporadic shooting to scare away voters in some areas.”
The Commissioner of Police, Edo State Command, Haliru Gwandu, however, said the police have not received any negative report so far when contacted about the alleged report of stolen card readers.
He said, “No adverse report so far. Anywhere we have a challenge, we try as much as possible to fortify the place. Everything has been going smoothly.”
