Four hoodlums have been nabbed with a handgun and a knife while on their way to voting booths in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
On Saturday morning, when voting for the state house of representatives and governorship got underway, the hoodlums were apprehended in Sapon in the Abeokuta-South Local Government Area.
Four people have been caught with hazardous weapons, including a gun and a knife, according to a soldier at the Sapon roadblock who did not want his name published since he was not authorized to comment on the situation.
He said, “When you see soldiers being hard on anyone, he is not just punishing anyone.
“We arrested four people with guns and knives. What are they doing with the gun and knife at the polling unit?
“I ask you, can you tell me what a voter wants to do with a gun and a knife?
“If they escape from the police, they cannot escape from soldiers; we will catch them.”
Meanwhile, another suspected hoodlum was seen doing a frog jump under the Sapon bridge after being caught by some security operatives.
