Hoodlums disrupt rerun election in Enugu



Hoodlums on Wednesday disrupted the Enugu rerun election for Enugu South 1 State Constituency, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says.

INEC said this in a short note on its verified X social media handle on Wednesday.

“Report from our Enugu State office indicate that hoodlums have disrupted the electoral process in the state constituency.

“Fortunately, no casualties were reported, but election materials were destroyed, and voters were obstructed from casting their votes.

“Our officials have been safely evacuated with assistance from security agencies.

“In contrast, the supplementary election in the Jalingo/Yorro/Zing Federal Constituency of Taraba State is unfolding peacefully across three local government areas,” it added.
