The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested persons alleged to have engaged in vote-buying in the Ekiti governorship election.
The EFCC, which is part of the security agencies deployed to monitor the election, paraed some of the suspects at the Oke Ori Omi Area Division of the Nigerian Police Force.
According to Channels TV, the suspects were said to have been caught with monies allegedly used to induce voters, an act the EFCC officials say were carried out surreptitiously.
The EFCC thereafter proceeded to burst into another residence where some persons were caught with a book containing details of voters of certain voting area.
Recall that the governorship candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP), Kemi Elebute-Halle had alleged that other political parties are inducing voters with money in the ongoing Ekiti guber election.
According to her, the All Progressives Congress (APC), the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and the Social Democratic Party (SDP) are buying votes with N10,000; N5,000, and N3,000 respectively.By Rabiu Tajudeen
