It is no news that Bankole Wellington, popularly known as Banky W, is vying for the seat of House of Representatives in Eti-Osa, Lagos. In light of this, the Nigerian singer and actor has been very active in following the electoral conducts practised in the constituency. He has particularly taken to reporting any such election related anomalies occurring in the area.
The voting process has come and gone, and even then, Banky W still got his ears on the ground. With regards to this, the musician turned politician took to reporting a crisis situation in Eti-Osa.
According to him, an anonymous party or people took to bringing in touts to polling units and disrupting the flow of the collation of results. Although Banky W did not particularly call out anybody, he was very emphatic in his claim that there had been aggressive intimidation from some people at about the wee hours of the night.
However, he also stated that the police in that area had quieted the situation and calmed the storm the unknown people were trying to stir.
Despite the calmness of the situation, Banky W still took to his social media page to address and blast whoever must have caused the issue in the first place.
He told them to wait like everyone else and watch the results being collated and counted. According to him, he and others were not intimidated by anybody trying to cause 'kasala' in the area. In essence, they would wait till results were successfully counted.
