The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN)  reports that  the thugs also burnt some ballot boxes and beat some voters, causing others to run for safety.

Security personnel were at the venue when the incident occurred.

The violence  forced some residents of the area to close their  street gates for security reasons.

A community leader in Tedi, Mr Idowu Lawal, condemned the violence, describing it as a bad development for Lagos State.

He said that eligible voters should be encouraged to exercise their civic right through provision of a secure environment.

“We thank God that no life was lost but the perpetrators of the violence that disenfranchised not less than thousands of voters should be meant to face the law,” he said.

Police operatives at the polling venue declined comments on the incident.
