A viral video on social media claims that an unidentified man was shot at the Ago palace, Okota of Lagos state.
The man who was described as a thug was seen lying unconscious in the video while residents of the area insisted that he must die.
The CDD Election War Room contacted various media observers on the field to verify the veracity of the claim.
We contacted about three media observers in Lagos who confirmed the incident but however noted that they couldn’t verify if the victim was dead or unconscious.
One resident who also spoke to CDD said her father was at the location when the political thug was killed. There are more violent videos coming out of Lagos state.
The claim is true. The political thug was indeed shot on election day, when attempting to meddle with the electoral process in the state.
