A political party agent, Eze Monday has escaped been lynched to death after some thugs were denied accreditation to vote in Ward 9, Units 9, 10 and 11 in Obagienevbosa Community, off Sapele Road, Ikpoba Okha Local Government Area in Edo State.

Report said the incident happened after a Youth leader Igie Osayande of the All Progressives Congress, APC, was allegedly clubbed to death and his body set ablaze by thugs invaded the voting centre last Saturday.

Some individuals who spotted the advancement of the thugs, quickly intervened and helped Eze Monday who was an agent to the People Democratic Party PDP, to escaped the mob attack.

A middle-aged man who claimed to be APC Agent in Unit 11, Mr Sunny Osagiede, said, “trouble started when the thugs stormed the area demanding to be accredited long after accreditation had closed and voting had commenced.

Osagiede alleged that the disagreement degenerated when the thugs returned to the voting center with more thugs and started scattering the ballot boxes and tore the ballot papers into shreds.

According to him, “In an attempt to resist them, the APC youth leader, Igie Osagiede, was attacked by the thugs and clubbed to death and was also set ablaze.

“My Mercedes Benz 190 was damaged and the Youth leader’s Mercedes Benz ML 350 4Matic was not spared in the attack. He said the body of the deceased youth leader has been deposited at a morgue”

He stated that efforts by the leader of the thugs (name withheld) to get accredited were rebuffed by the Presiding Officer who told him that voting had already started.

He was then prevailed upon by the some concerned individuals and policemen on patrol arrived to broker peace and to avert a reprisal attack.
