Gunshots as Desmond Elliot Attacked in Lagos

Nollywood Actor Cum Politician, Desmond Elliott, escaped unhurt after hoodlums attacked the vehicle he was riding in to his polling unit in Surulere, Lagos state, where he was meant to cast his vote.

Desmond who is re-contesting for a seat in the state House of Assembly candidate, was reportedly driving along Akerele road at about 3.00pm when some hoodlums tried to stop him to collect money from him.

Angered that he refused to stop and attend to them, one of them fired a gunshot at his car, damaging his windscreen.

Immediately he was rescued, thugs shot sporadically into the air, creating an even more tense atmosphere.

In a quick response, however, police officers attached to the nearby polling unit called in armed reinforcement who arrived to calm the situation.

Ad-hoc staffers of the electoral commission, INEC, were advised by security personnel to conclude their vote counting early before the situation escalates.
