A middle-aged woman has been knocked down by a bike rider while making effort to go and cast her vote. This incident occurred at about 10:12 am in PU048, Salasi opposite Post Office, in Karu, Abuja Municipal Area Council when the woman, a voter, was attempting to cross the road to her polling unit.
All Times Global Magazine gathered that the motorcyclist, who rode with an attached flag of one of the political parties drove the bike in a frenzy as if he was under an influence.
Voters in the area immediately apprehended the motorcyclist and handed him over to security operatives deployed for the election.
The Federal Capital Territory FCT Command of the Nigerian Police Force had on the eve of the election announced a restriction of November but hours later released another statement relaxing the restrictions and urging all residents to go about their normal duties.
Yet, hours later, at about midnight, the Command again issued a notice of restriction, saying it was in receipt of credible intelligence to the effect that some miscreants were trying to cash in on the relaxed atmosphere to foment violence.
