A man has been captured in a video threatening to hurt any voters of Igbo extraction who decide to vote in the polling center.

The polling unit was identified as Ikate Land - 4/6 polling units.

The video that has now gone viral was shared by a tweep with the handle, @J_child_eddy.

In a thread on Twitter, he said there was no voting from the polling unit.

Let it be known. There was no election at Ikate Land. 4/6 polling units destroyed by thugs resident at the Oba’s Palace close by.

The sad thing is Celebs like Bryan Okwara, Adeyemi Okalawon, Toyin Abraham and dignitaries like tech CEOs tried voting

A guy was beaten and the Police were looking. We shouted at Police to intervene but they just unlooked.

We are all just looking and waiting. Army nowhere to be seen, DSS nowhere to be seen.

Imagine what is happening on the mainland. One guy was almost killed because he did videos. Police unlooked.

All the thugs wore face masks!!!

And it is worrisome because if they destroy votes there, will Tinubu not be affected too?
