The missions of the United States, European Union and the United Kingdom that were on the ground to monitor the Osun State governorship rerun said there were incidents of harassment and intimidation of voters.
The US Consul General, Mr John F. Bray, who read the missions’ joint report, said, “The missions of the United States, European Union and the United Kingdom observed voting at polling stations in Osun today (Thursday). We witnessed what appeared to be incidents of interference and intimidation of voters and have reports of harassment of party monitors, journalists and domestic observers.
“We are very concerned by these reports and we will be checking with stakeholders to determine the facts. We call on all stakeholders to remain calm.”
