President Muhammadu Buhari has warned that anyone caught in the act of snatching election ballot box will pay with his/her life.
President Buhari issued this warning at the All Progressives Congress (APC) caucus meeting on Monday.
According to him, that will be the last unlawful action such person and those directly involved will commit.
He said; “Anybody who decides to snatch ballot boxes or lead thugs to disturb, it may be that [this will be] the last unlawful action you will take,” Buhari said.
“I rarely give the military and the police [the power] to be ruthless. We are not going be blamed but we won’t rig election. I want Nigerians to be respected; let them vote whoever they want across the parties. I’m not afraid of it.
“The whole 36 states in Nigeria, I went round. I think I have got enough support across the country to look after me. So I’m going to warn anybody who thinks he has enough influence in his locality to lead a body of thugs to snatch boxes or to disturb the voting system, he will do it at the expense of his own life.”
