Nigerians are turning out in large numbers to cast their votes for the candidates of their choice. Prince Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the public relations officer for the Nigerian police force, responded to an alleged claim that thugs are yelling and threatening to kill anyone who votes for Mr. Peter Obi of the Labour Party via his Twitter account.
A popular blog, "Gistlovers," claimed in a post that APC thugs are shouting and threatening to kill anyone who votes for Obi in the Surulere, Lagos, elementary school polling places.
Prince Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the public relations officer for the Nigerian police force, responded to the alleged report by asking if the people who made it had called the numbers that the police had provided and advising them to do so if they had not in order to file reports.
He asked, quoting from Prince Olumuyiwa Adejobi's declaration, "Have they phoned the nos we shared? There should be no trivialization of these important problems on social media. If not, they should phone the numbers and submit reports immediately, in my opinion.
