A man has been arrested with about $80, 000 for vote-buying in Imo state as the governorship and assembly election was winding to a tumultuous close a few hours ago.
The man, whose identity was not disclosed, was arrested between the axis of Isiala Mbano and Ikeduru local government areas.
The man was arrested on a tip off by a vigilant official on election duty in Isiala Mbano, who had observed him dispensing cash to voters in return for their votes.
The official tipped-off a patrol team in the area, which then intercepted the man.
At the time of filing this report, the man has been taken to the police headquarters in Owerri where he’s currently in custody.
