Nigerian singer, Aituaje Iruobe, professionally known as Waje was in tears as she narrated the voter Intimidation and suppression allegedly witnessed at her polling unit during the governorship and House of Assembly elections in Lagos state, STATEPRESS reports.

In a video she shared in her Instagram video, Waje said INEC moved their polling unit from the usual safe place to a rural area this morning. She said that they had no problem with it and went to the new polling unit to vote. She said all was going well initially until thugs gathered and began beating up voters and attacking those with phones. She revealed that the thugs pounced on one of her friends and beat him up badly.

Fighting tears, the singer questioned why such level of voter suppression should be allowed to happen.

"You guys are evil. You knew what you were doing," she said, calling out INEC.

This morning, voters in VGC also complained that INEC suddenly shifted polling unit today and asked voters to meet them at the express to vote.
