Police recovers snatched ballot boxes, weapons in Lagos


Police operatives in Lagos have recovered weapons, ballot boxes, and sensitive materials snatched by some suspected thugs during Saturday’s governorship and house of assembly elections in the state.

The state’s Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, who confirmed the development to journalists after he rounded off his monitoring activities for the election, said some persons were also arrested for various electoral offences in different parts of the state.

He said: “We made a number of arrests. We also made some recoveries in terms of sensitive materials, ballot boxes, and offensive weapons. The number of arrests is still being compiled by our field officers.

“By Sunday morning, I will know the exact number and make it public. No one was killed in Lagos State during the gubernatorial election.”
