There was controversy over the alleged attack on a party agent, Agbo Icha Emmanuel, at Idabi Polling Booth, Otukpo.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, claimed that Agbo Icha was apprehended by youths in the area that resisted his attempt to hijack electoral materials but the All Progressives Congress, APC, claimed that he was attacked by thugs loyal to the PDP.
Agbo Icha, an agent of the APC, in the ongoing Benue South Senatorial District re-run, claimed that he was attacked by suspected thugs.
He alleged that he was attacked after he resisted attempts by the thugs to hijack electoral materials at Idabi polling booth at Otukpi- Icho.
However, his claim was countered by the PDP who claimed that youths in the area prevented Emmanuel from disrupting the poll. According to tweets from the official handle of the PDP, Emmanuel attempted to run away with a ballot box at Idabi PU of Otukpo LGA.
