Edo Decides: PDP Candidate Airhiavbere Accredited As Immigration Officials Nab Togolese Mercenary
The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Rtd Gen. Charles Airhiavbe and his wife were successfully accredited to vote today at Garrick Memorial School, Uzebu quarters, Benin City.
The accreditation of voters which was billed to begin by 8am was delayed until 11am because electoral officials awaited materials.
While waiting for accreditation a Togolesse man simply identified as Monday Asijolu was arrested and whisked away by immigration officials at Oba Akenzua Primary school, Uzebu.
He alleged that he was brought in from Togo by one of the parties to engage in unlawful voting, he also confessed that they where brought in large numbers.
