'Voter suppression' | 'Bad losers' — LP, APC trade words over attacks in Lagos


The Labour Party (LP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) have traded words over the attacks on voters in Lagos state.

Attacks were recorded in various parts of the state during the governorship and state house of assembly elections on Saturday.

In a Twitter post, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, the governorship candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in Lagos, Rodes-Vivour alleged intimation of voters across the state and accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the police of complicity.

“From all over Lagos, we are getting distressing reports of voter intimation, voter suppression. The worrying thing about this is that INEC and the police have shown to be complicit in this,” he said.

“The reason why we are doing this video is because it is important that INEC and the police realise that they are provoking Lagasions right now.

“INEC still has hours to do the right thing. With the help of security agencies, the commission will be able to calm down a lot of things. A lot of areas are still under intense attacks by thugs and hooligans of the APC.

“I call on INEC, most especially, and the police not to set Lagos on fire. This is a state that houses 22 million people. Having that many people angry because of being disenfranchised is not something Nigeria needs now.
