Commotion as thugs disrupt PVC collection in Osun


There was commotion on Thursday as unidentified persons disrupted the ongoing collection of Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) at Ilesa West Local Government Area of Osun State.

According to eyewitnesses, the unidentified persons who were suspected to be political thugs had stormed the venue of the PVC collection and terrorised residents who had gathered to collect their PVCs scampered for safety.

In order to ensure safety of lives, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Electoral Officer for the local government had to temporarily suspend distribution of PVCs following the attack.
