Suspected hoodlums on yesterday stormed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) office, Ijebu-jesa in Oriade local government area of Osun in an attempt to raid electoral materials.

It was gathered that the hoodlums who came in their numbers, attacked the Commission’s office shooting sporadically at about 3:00 am.

They were promptly repelled by men of Nigeria Police Force but they succeeded in setting ablaze two power generator kept outside the office and also burnt some empty ballot boxes and mats kept outside.

However, the situation was brought under control while Osun State Police Command said it was intensifying efforts to bring the culprits to book.

Meanwhile, INEC declared Olufemi Fakeye, of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as winner of the Ila/Ifedayo/Boluwaduro Federal constituency in last Saturday’s election.
