BREAKING: Lagos voters threaten as APC thugs take to the streets of Lagos
APC thugs take to the streets of Lagos to threaten voters.
Residents of Agbo-Ola street, Orile, Oshodi, Lagos have been threatened with not voting at all if they do not submit their ballots for APC candidates in the state’s governorship and House of Assembly elections Saturday.
A video seen by NewsOnline showed about 20 young men strolling the street of Agbo-Ola while thundering “APC… congress” on Saturday morning.

“If you no fit vote APC, just stay for your house, make you sleep, make you chop eba,” one of the almost 20 thugs adorning a hoodie said in pidgin, as he walked down the untarred street.
The thugs threatened people in an attempt to deter voters from turning out in large numbers.
In order to scare electors away from voting for APC rivals, similar threats have been made in Sangotedo and Okiki Junction, off Ago Palace Way in Lagos State.
Security personnel was nowhere to be seen, and they said nothing about the event.
When contacted on WhatsApp, Benjamin Hundeyin, spokesperson for the Lagos state police command, replied with an automated message that said “I am sorry I cannot reply right away.”
Mr. Hundeyin says he “will reply as soon as I see your message” in the automated response.
