APC Thugs Insisted I Voted APC, My Clothes Were Torn And I Got Beaten Up - Lady Alleges

A lady on Twitter has alleged that at her polling unit, she was accosted by some political thugs who identify as the All Progressive Congress (APC) supporters.

According to the Twitter user identified as Uzodimma Lucy Ogodo, she went to the polling unit to exercise her franchise when she met with the thugs. 

They followed her to her polling booth and insisted that she must vote for the APC. She stated that she refused and after so much struggle to tear her ballot paper, she was able to vote for her preferred candidate instead.

“Today I went to my polling unit to perform my civic duty...APC thugs followed me to my polling booth insisting I vote APC. Of course, I refused and voted my preferred candidate after much struggle to tear my ballot paper, in front of the already-bought-over security men and INEC staff,” she said

She further alleged that when they realized that they couldn’t change her vote, they tore her clothes and started beating her. She stated that she was also threatened that if they ever saw her in town, she would be killed.

The lady posted a picture with blood on her face and her clothes to corroborate her story.
