A man suspected to have fixed a network jammer in his car to disrupt the card readers escaped being lynched by irritate youths who queued to be accredited at Kasuwan Barchi area of Tudun Wada in Kaduna metropolis on election day.
According to an eyewitness, the suspect who was said to have jammed card readers at a polling unit in Tudun Wada was said to have used a car brand called fisher eye, which he packed closely to the polling unit before he allegedly started manipulating the card readers.
His manipulation was said to have succeeded in stopping the card readers from working for some times.
When some voters sensed where the trouble was coming from, they poked into the suspect’s car and discovered the network jammer, the eyewitness added.
When it was obvious that his deed had been exposed, the suspect was said to have tried to run away from the spot, but the more he tried to run, the more the voters pounced on him.
It was added that the timely intervention of elderly people around the polling unit saved the suspect, who eventually escaped into thin air.
“He partook in ballot box snatching during 2011 presidential election, and now that he cannot snatch ballot box, he decided to jam the card readers”, the eyewitness said.
In a similar development, another man escaped being mobbed by voters on the queue when it was alleged that the man deceived 150 women and collected their PVCs on the pretext that he was going to help to accredit them.
The incident happened in TaroTaro polling unit in Rigasa area, according to an eyewitness, explaining that the suspect attempted to run away but was quickly whisked away by some soldiers who were standing by for eventuality at the polling unit.
