Ondo Chief Arrested With Fake Ballot Papers Ahead Of PDP Primaries

A man, who identified himself as Lateef Balogun, has been arrested in Ondo State by the Nigeria Police Force (NPF).

The man, who claimed to be Cheif Mayegun of Afo, was nabbed with fake ballot papers in favour of a PDP aspirant yet to be identified.

He was carrying a bag containing the ballot papers when some party members stopped him.

The party members descended on him before he was rescued by the security at the premises of the primary.

The suspect denied any knowledge of possessing the fake papers, adding that he was invited by someone to come to one Hon. Titus Olupitan’s house.

However, protesters stormed the gate of the primary, claiming that the man is working with Deputy Governor Agboola Ajayi to rig the primary – an allegation which has not been confirmed.

The primary is yet to commence as of the time of filing this report.
