AYETORO, KOGI STATE, NIGERIA - Some youths on Saturday (today)  unleashed terror on some journalists who are covering the governorship election in Ayetoro area of Kogi State, Nigeria. 

The attack came after suspected thugs ran off with ballot boxes at Ward 01, Unit 004, where Dino Melaye had earlier voted.

It would be recalled that suspected thugs numbering about 10 had  invaded the polling unit in two Hilux vans and a Honda Civic car, shooting into the air and targeting the ballot boxes.

The invasion had led to the taking away of the ballot boxes, while some boys in the community chased the vehicles with no success.

The attacked journalists are from The PUNCH, The Nation, Splash FM and others and were eventually trapped in the violence that ensued.
