Ekiti 2022: EFCC Arrests PDP Sympathiser Over Alleged Vote Buying

Amid vote buying trailing the Ekiti State Governorship election, a member of the People’s Democratic Party, Damola Ojo, has been arrested in Ado -Ekiti by operatives of the anti- graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). 

Ojo was whisked away at a polling unit inside Ola Oluwa Muslim Secondary School, Ado Ekiti, following a tip-off.

Ojo, whom the PDP agent at the polling unit, Babajide Adebayo, described as an Engineer, was allegedly caught with a large sum of money.

Checks, however, revealed that before the arrival of the EFCC officials, there was ongoing voters’ inducement across parties divide.

Adebayo, who confirmed Ojo’s arrest, told journalists that he had since informed chieftains of the PDP for their intervention.

He denied that Ojo was giving money to voters.

“When EFCC people came, somebody pointed at Ojo, who was standing alone.

“There was nobody with him, he was not talking to anybody or given money to anybody, he was arrested and whisked away.

“Ojo is an Engineer, he came to work in Ekiti but I have made calls to tell our leaders about the arrest,” he noted.

Across the state, party members still reached out to voters secretly not far from polling units where men of the anti- graft agency were sighted.
