Some ballot boxes at polling unit 18 located at junction of Ohafia/Ago Palace Way, Okota in Oshodi/Isolo LGA of Lagos state have been set on fire.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) correspondent who witnessed the incident reports that polling unit 23 located on Baba-Ewe Street/Ago Place Way was also affected by the fire.

INEC ad-hoc staff at the polling units, as well as voters who came out to cast their votes, ran away from the polling centres for safety.
