No fewer than four persons sustained injuries at Ogharra Primary School, Jattu, during the Edo State governorship election, while a ballot box and card reader were snatched at separate developments at Sabongidda Ora and Ibillo respectively.
The hoodlums were said to have chased party agents away and stabbed one of them who resisted beside his eye.
Their action, it was learnt, led to a fight which took the intervention of armed policemen and three armoured tanks to quell, while three suspects, including a woman was arrested.
It was also gathered that suspected militants from Warri who entered Irua in Esan Central Local Government Area to cause mayhem were intercepted by police operatives.
Also arrested were commercial drivers who flaunted the restriction of movement order. While some of them had their vehicles impounded, others were cautioned and asked to park at a particular spot till 6pm.
