Gunmen steal ballot boxes
The voting exercises had turned rowdy as gunmen stormed polling centres at the Immaculate Heart Catholic Church and the St Faith Catholic Church in Fegge, Onitsha.
Eyewitnesses who spoke with journalists said the armed men made their way to St Faith Catholic Church by Mbonu Ejike/Basden Junction in a bus and opened gunshots to scare the voters and security agents.
The thugs drove straight to the ballot boxes and fled with at least two of them.
While this was happening, another set of gunmen stormed the polling unit at the Immaculate Heart Church along Ziks Avenue and left with one ballot box.
