At least six fake delegates and thugs were arrested during the rescheduled governorship primary in Ekiti state Saturday.

They reportedly attempted to force their way into the venue of the election. Vanguard gathered that they engaged the security operatives who manned the gate as they insisted in going into the hall to vote without being a delegate.

One of the hoodlums after much argument was discovered to have on his neck a charm wrapped in a red piece of cloth. Those arrested claimed to be delegates from various council areas of the state but could not produce any evidence that they are accredited delegates in the exercise.

A large sum of money was found in their possession. They were later handed over to police detectives from the CID division in the state.

Following the ugly development, security at the entrance to the venue of the exercise were fortified.

All those who passed through the two entrances were frisked to their pants by both the police and officers of the DSS.
