Kogi Bye-Election: SDP Agents Shot By Suspected Political Thugs


Two agents of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) have been shot by political thugs.
The agents were shot during the ongoing bye-election for Kogi/Koto-Karfe federal constituency, by suspected political thugs in Kogi State.
The Chief Press Secretary to the former Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Umar Ali confirmed this to newsmen on earlier today.
The names of the agents is still unknown as at the time of filing this report.
Ali, whose principal is a candidate under the Social Democratic Party (SDP) said the two agents have been whisked to an unknown hospital for treatment.
He said they were shot inside their vehicle along Federal Medical Centre road in Lokoja.
However, attempt to snatch election materials and ballot box at one of the polling units at Ward B was frustrated by determined voters.
At Paparanda square, Independent National Electoral Commission staff had to flee the polling unit for safety due to confusion created by sporadic gunshots by security men attached to the chief of staff to Kogi state governor.
The official was alleged to be going from one polling units to another in Lokoja when he was confronted by youths who questioned the legality of his action.
