Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, governorship flag bearer in Delta State, Obarisi Ovie Omo-Agege, has warned against the use of the military in Saturday’s presidential election in the state as well as subsequent elections.
Omo-Agege had condemned the alleged use of heavily armed military men to chase away voters, who were not Peoples Democratic Party, PDP members, snatching of ballot boxes and disallowing voters from voting for candidates of their choice during the recently held National Assembly elections, thus leading to its disruption in Orogun, the gubernatorial flag bearer’s home town.
Condemning the inability of Orogun natives to exercise their civic right at the National Assembly elections, Omo-Agege said that voting did not take place in Orogun wards due to the alleged shooting of some unarmed youths on their way to the voting centres because they were not PDP card caring members.
Omo-Agege alleged the youths were shot at by a section of the military tagged Anti-Kidnap Terrorists Squad, AKS.
