Speaking to newsmen after voting, Jegede accused INEC of creating a problem. “The commission should be asked why the card reader stopped functioning when it was his turn to vote.

“INEC is creating a problem. Their machine stopped working when it was my turn to vote. I have to protest and they said the machine was rectified.

“But despite all these hitches, there has not been major disruption. But I don’t know what is happening in remote areas.

“The turnout has been massive, voters conducted themselves well. Am aware there is a pocket of violence in Ijomu area. I also heard of an incident of vote-buying.

“In Owo for instance, a former commissioner led thugs to attack one Sadiq Obanoyen and injured him in a patrol vehicle.

Jegede added that “These are incidences of violence. Unfortunately, it is happening. But by the grace of God, we will still win.”
