Military operatives attached to 4 Brigade have intercepted buses loaded with thugs heading for Okada, headquarters of Ovia North East local government area in Delta State.
The buses were reportedly in the convoy of Barr. Omosede Igbinedion, the Peoples Democratic Party candidate for Ovia Federal Constituency.
It was gathered the soldiers stopped the convoy and the occupants said they were on their way to Okada to perform their civic responsibility but they couldn’t provide their PVCs.
Witnesses told The Nation that the boys were asked to lie on the floor.
Chairman of Ovia South West local government, Destiny Enabulele, confirmed the arrest of the suspected thugs.
He praised the soldiers for being vigilant saying what they want in Ovia is peaceful elections.
Igbinedon could not be reached for comments as calls to her phone went unanswered.
