Buhari declares death sentence on ballot box snatchers
President Muhammadu Buhari today passed a stern warning to individuals who intend to steal ballot boxes at the forthcoming presidential and National Assembly election on February 23.
Speaking at an emergency caucus meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja, President Buhari ordered the police and the military to ruthlessly deal with ballot box snatchers.
Buhari said, “Anybody who decides to snatch boxes or lead thugs to disturb the election, maybe that would be the last unlawful action you would take. I have given the military and police the order to be ruthless.
”I am going to warn anybody who thinks he would lead a body of thugs in his locality to snatch boxes or to disturb the voting system; he would do it at the expense of his/her own life”
