INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in the state, Mr. Olusegun Agbaje, gave the warning in Osogbo, the state capital on Thursday during a meeting with representatives of political parties in the state.

Agbaje noted that this was in connection to a plot by some politicians to manipulate the process, adding that INEC was taking necessary steps to ensure a free, fair and credible exercise.

“We won’t allow the use of phones at the polling centres; we are aware of a plan by some people to manipulate this process by compelling the voters to snap their ballot papers and present such as receipt for money given to entice and induce them.
