Two vote boxes that had been stolen by thugs from the Government Science Secondary School in the state’s Jekadafari region were found by soldiers in Gombe State. The state’s governor, Muhammed Yahaya, cast his vote at the school as well.
The Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council’s North-East Coordinator was Yahaya.
When the House of Representatives election count was in progress, thugs with firearms, cutlasses, and other hazardous weapons showed there with the intention of stealing ballot boxes, papers, and other important items.
Out of the four boxes snatched, security personnel retrieved two. The incident happened around 7.20pm.
An eyewitness, Abdulkadir Babangida, stated that the hoodlums arrived at the venue suddenly. He added, “They made away with four boxes, but the security operatives retrieved two from them. It took the intervention of the military to retrieve just two boxes from the four carried by the hoodlums.”
