A former governor of Oyo State, Senator Adewolu Ladoja, said ballot snatchers were operating freely in some polling units across the state.
He said he had received reports of ballot-snatching at some polling booths on Iwo Road, Aperin, and Oja Igbo, blaming the incident on inadequate security.
The Zenith Labour Party leader spoke on Saturday after casting his vote at Ward 10, Unit 013 on Ondo Street, Bodija Estate, Ibadan.
He said, “Compared to two weeks ago, most of the electoral officials got to their stations on time.
“But it is regrettable that in some areas like Oja Igbo, Aperin, and Iwo Road, ballot boxes were being snatched. It was a field day for the snatchers. I only hope that something will be done about it.
“Whoever emerges should thank God and serve the people to the best of his ability.”
