From the field reports we got so far, I will say they are okay. In my part of Ogun State where I voted, there was no single incident of violence. Everything went well. The BVAS worked well in my unit and the entire Ijebu Ode town. So far, I am also yet to hear anybody say they have an issue in that area.

What about the situation in Lagos?

There was a bit of confusion in Lagos. From what we heard, some new polling units were created and I think people who didn’t get to check their names on the wall got confused about where the unit they fell. I think the main confusion arose when they started asking around for their polling booths.

There was another incident in Eti Osa where some LP supporters ‘arrested’ INEC officials. It took the intervention of soldiers to free them in VGC (Victoria Garden City). But, of course, this can be said to be an isolated case. I cannot dismiss the fact that there were reports of violence in some areas. But generally, things are much more peaceful.
