Soldiers have blocked a major route leading to Okene, Kogi State, the hometown of Governor Yahaya Bello.

On Saturday, soldiers reportedly prevented reporters and election monitors from accessing the road leading to Governor Yahaya Bello’s polling place in Okene, Kogi State, according to PM News Nigeria.

An explanation for the obstruction was not provided. However, around 8:15 a.m., the military allowed reporters and election monitors to proceed.

Nevertheless, another obstruction was observed at the S.J. Deluxe Hotel on the Okene-Lokoja road.

SaharaReporters had previously highlighted that the commencement of the Kogi governorship election was marked by voter registration and the presence of electoral officers.

In Lokoja, there is a notable presence of election and security officers at almost every polling station, with potential voters verifying their names.

Reports from Ankpa, Idah, Omala, and Ofu indicate that materials arrived early.

Similarly, materials have arrived early for Kabba Bunu, Mopamuro, Yagba East, and West LGAs, and accreditation is set to commence.
