It was gathered that the ugly attack allegedly occurred in Surulere, Lagos when the woman tried to vote for a party of her choice.

Pockets of violence erupted in some Lagos polling units including the polling unit outside the Oba Elegushi Palace at Ikate in Eti-Osa, Lekki, Lagos State which was also attacked by thugs.
