Voting was halted at Unit 8, Ward 2 by Uffa Ovoko area, in Akoko-Edo Local Government Area on Saturday after a member of the People Democratic Party, PDP, was allegedly caught while trying to double-vote
David Omokahi, APC party agent at the Unit said they resisted an alleged PDP member from committing the crime.
Omokahi said the PDP member came to cast his vote in Unit 8 having done so in Unit 7.
However, Sunday Obendel, a PDP party agent said the claim by APC was not true.
He lamented that voting has stopped for over an hour now because of the claim which he described as a lie from the pit of hell.
There were reports earlier that some polling units have been pencilled down for disruption and burning of ballot boxes, especially where the APC candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu is popular in Akoko Edo Local government area.
