The Labour Party (LP) has claimed that one of its agent was forced to sign a result sheet at gunpoint in Lagos.⁣


Millions of Nigerians went to the polls on Saturday, February 25, 2023 to elect the next president to replace President Muhammadu Buhari in May.⁣

24 hours after polls closed, states like Lagos have started announcing the results of the closely-contested election.⁣

When officials announced the total number of votes in Badagry Local Government Area of the state, the LP agent at the collation centre objected. She claimed the score didn’t tally with what her party already has based on the collation of the polling unit results across the LGA.⁣

Pulse reports that the officials said her complaint was moot because her party’s agent signed the result sheet, but she noted the agent did it under duress.⁣


“The agent reported to me he had to sign at gunpoint. That’s exactly what happened,” she said.⁣
The LP official also strongly rejected the result of Lagos Mainland LGA when it was announced, but officials said the party’s agent also signed the result.⁣

When she insisted that her complaint be taken seriously, the officials called for a one-hour break before they reconvene to continue the collation.⁣
