Despite INEC promising the election will be conducted in a free and fair manner, a video of a man sharing his ordeal in the hands of thugs is making rounds.


According to him, he was flogged out of his polling unit in Isolo, Lagos state. He said he was been accredited and was about to cast his ballot when some thugs came out with cane and flogged him mercilessly.
