He said that it was unfair to intimidate opposition in an election.

“I got information that there were plans to arrest my key supporters during the elections and I made it public through a broadcast and it still came to pass.

“Why will supporters of the opposition party be arrested, detained and prevented from voting by security agents?

“There is no democracy without opposition, so what is happening is against the principles of democracy,” he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that voting commenced across the state as scheduled and so far, ongoing peacefully.
