Famous Nigerian medical doctor Olawale Ogunlana on Twitter has narrated how he was harassed at his polling unit in Lagos because he looked like an Igbo person.
Sharing On Twitter, Dr. Olawale stated that his polling unit was overwhelmed by alleged thugs who hindered them from voting and branded the election as a proper crime watch.
He said "I was harassed today at the polling unit and told that I looked like an Igbo person. It's obvious that the ruling party plans to use intimidation, tactical disenfranchisement, violence, thuggery, and tribal bigotry to hold on to power. This is not an election. This is a crime watch".
Speaking further, he said "It is easier for Nigerians to participate in electoral processes in the UK and US than in their home country, Nigeria. If you don't see this as a problem, then you need help"
Nevertheless, Nigerians have reacted to his tweets, as some also narrated their orders at their polling unit.
