Men of the Nigerian police have been accused of compromising the recently concluded election that took place in Ekiti state. 

Governor Ayodele Fayose
The governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, has alleged that Saturday’s gubernatorial election has been largely compromised by personnel of the Nigerian police.
The News Agency if Nigeria reports that the governor, who addressed journalists shortly after casting his vote at about 1:20 pm at his Polling Unit 001 in Afao-Ekiti, alleged that policemen aided and abetted the distribution of money to induce voters.
He, however, admitted that voters turned out massively and conducted themselves in a peaceful manner.
The governor accused  policemen of supervising ballot snatching as well as providing  cover for those reported to be engaged in illegal sharing  of money on  election day.
According to him, all attempts to personally report the alleged cases  to the police  authorities were rebuffed.

“I want to state expressly that the police have hijacked the whole process;  INEC might mean well but the process was tampered  with by the police

”As I speak, thugs are having a field day snatching ballot boxes under police watch;  this is a national disgrace
”There were cases of not only  ballot snatching, but ballot cleansing and clearing, even as the police and other officers cooperated by looking the other way,’’he said.
But one of the three Police Commissioners deployed in the area to monitor the gubernatorial poll, Ali Janga, dismissed the allegations.
He commended the Independent National Electoral Commission and the electorate for the peaceful conduct of the exercise.
Mr Janga said most of the allegations raised by politicians were promptly investigated and  were found to be untrue.
“I have visited some of the local governments and there was no electoral manipulation anywhere as being claimed

“People just raise false alarm by sending distress calls to us, but many of them were found to be false when we got there.

“Election materials were distributed as early as possible and they were guarded by security men and  the turnout was very impressive,” he said.
