2023 Elections: Angry Mob Beats Corps Member To Death In Nigeria, For Locking Self In Room, Putting Thumbprint On Ballot Papers For APC


Angry voters on Saturday beat a corps member to death in Abuja for voting multiple times using his thumbprint on many ballot papers for the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, in the ongoing general elections.

The corps member who was serving as the ad-hoc staff member for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was caught on Saturday.

He reportedly locked himself in a classroom at a polling unit located at LEA primary school, Lugbe, Airport Road, Abuja where he used his thumbprint on many ballot papers to vote for the APC.

It was gathered that while voters came out en masse to cast their votes for their preferred candidates, voters were told that there were no ballot papers for the voting to commence. 

While people were still waiting for hours and hoping for the arrival of the ballot papers, it was discovered that a corps member had locked himself in a classroom and was putting his thumbprint on all the ballot papers for the APC. 

From video footage of the incident seen by SaharaReporters, an angry mob descended on the corps member, beating him.

It was learnt that the beating eventually led to his death.
