Edo Election: Voters Scramble For Cash As APC Leaders Allegedly Share Money At Polling Unit [Video]
Former Senator representing Kogi West at the National Assembly, Dino Melaye, who shared the video on his Twitter page, alleged that some supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) clashed with APC over alleged the money-sharing.
It was gathered that the money was brought in by the APC leaders as a way of swaying the voters to vote for the party.
However, their aim of buying votes at the units was unsuccessful as voters were seen in the video grabbing each other over the money. Only one policeman was seen trying to control the situation.
