Three persons including a policewoman have been killed by thugs in the by-election for Ekiti East Constituency (i) in Ekiti State house of assembly, Africa Giant news reports.
The seat became vacant following the death of Juwa Adegbuyi who was representing the constituency in February. Several vehicles were also vandalised in the violence at different polling units.
Biodun Olujimi, senator representing Ekiti South, was said to have escaped by whiskers as the thugs went on a rampage in her polling units in Omuo Ekiti.
Africa Giant News understands that the deceased policewoman is a nursing mother.
