A Twitter user, Solomon Buchi @Solomon_Buchi claimed that voters were not allowed to vote in Lugbe Primary School Abuja while some unidentified people he referred to as “they” have been thumbprinting inside and they have been bursted.
Voters have been waiting since morning, not knowing that they’ve been thumbprinting inside. They got bursted.

His claim was also corroborated by another user Humanity 1st, Before Religion @NedunckDefi – according to him, the police and soldiers were all compromised. He went further to claim that “they will accredit voters without given them ballot paper, while the police are thumbprint it themselves”
