The Violence Recorded In Lagos Election Was Blown Out Of Proportion on Social Media – Police
The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, has confirmed that there were cases of electoral violence recorded in some parts of Lagos State during the Gubernatorial and State House of Assembly elections.
However, Idowu Owohunwa disclosed that it is important to note that the violence that was witnessed in some parts of Lagos State during the election was not enough to disrupt the election process because it was blown out of proportion.
Speaking further, Idowu Owohunwa revealed that when the news of the violence circulated, the social media helped to amplify the violence beyond what it truly was.
Speaking further, Idowu Owohunwa said that in most instances where the violence was reported, the Nigerian police was on ground as soon as possible to put things in order.
