Nigerian star actress Rita Dominic has called out the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over its misconduct at her residential estate in Lagos.

The movie beauty, whose polling unit is at Victoria Garden City (VGC), was surprised to see that INEC officials had moved from inside the estate where they used to stay (during past elections), to mount their equipment outside.

Perplexed by the abrupt act of INEC without informing the residents of the estate, Rita noted that the electoral officers changed the process this time as they have never conducted their elections outside the estate premises.

"I have voted in the same polling unit for over 10 years and did so just about 3 weeks ago for the presidential election. I can’t fathom why INEC officials will decide to move this outside? There are many senior citizens who live inside the estate, who want to exercise their civic duty but, as it stands now, might not be able to do that because of this decision."
