The Independent National Election Commission (INEC) Lagos Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Olusegun Agbaje has warned Nigerians against sending a death threat to him as he is not intimidated by them.
Speaking at the collation of the just concluded governorship elections in Lagos, he noted that the elections are won in polling units and not at the collation Centre.
He lamented that elections should not be a do-or-die affair and that snatching of ballot boxes is uncalled for.
He said, “Election should not be a do-or-die affair. It is the work of INEC to midwife good elections. Snatching of ballot boxes is not good at all.
“Also, it is not visible for any REC including myself in Nigeria to manipulate any election at this time.
“For those sending death threats, I am not afraid of death. I am a devoted Christian and Anglican. I served in the DSS for 30 years, and my life was not threatened, so my working with INEC for a few number of years should not make me fear death. I pray every day, so I don’t fear death”.
