This was after voting had ended and some of the voters were waiting for the official 2.30 pm end of voting time to begin the counting of the ballots.

Some of the voters alerted Jegede whose house is just few metres away from the polling unit out of fear that the police action may be a plot to substitute the already cast ballots.
