According to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the rain destroyed some election materials with the voting booths in some polling thoroughly soaked, while staff of INEC took refuge and struggled to secure the materials.

Jegede and his wife were still on the queue waiting for their turn to cast their votes at PU 009, Ward 02, Akure South LGA, when the rain started.
