People of Ondo State on Saturday came out to vote in the local government elections across the 203 wards in the state.
Seven political parties joined in the local elections.
This is the first local election since Governor Akeredolu came to capacity in 2016.
There were reports of the low contribution of electoral materials in some units because of the gigantic turnout of voters.
In Unit 19 Ward 4, women and youths protested snatching of ballot boxes.
The women and youths who said they voted for the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in the ward said they were shocked when thugs on motor-cycle stormed the polling unit and carted away the ballot papers.

Ward 4 Woman Leader of SDP, Bisi Aderemi, said she was bribed with N30, 000 but she refused because she wanted the SDP councillorship candidate, Kehinde Joseph, to win the election.

Kehinde, who called for the cancellation of the election, said proper accreditation was not done.

Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu voted at his Ward five-unit six, Ijebu-Owo described the local election as a huge success.

Akeredolu stated that reports he received showed there was a large turnout of voters.

State Chairman of APC, Engr. Ade Adetimehin, who voted at Idanre, debunked allegations of ballot snatching.

Adetimehin said reports of ballot snatching were hyped by the media.

“I heard such stories. Some are media hype. The tension in Akure North was caused by SDP supporters.

“In Irele, we heard minor issues and soldiers went in. They wanted to hijack but the boys were stopped. The people will as well troop out to perform their civic right on October 10, 2020.

He hailed the electoral body for the quick arrival of electoral materials.

At Emure Ward 11, Unit 16 in Owo Local Government Area, Chief Alex Ajipe, CEO, Kilck Konnect Network International, said the election was Peaceful.
