About election violence like by Barr Gloria Eguji said in her speech

“One is sadly reminded of the past and even re-occurring incidents of violence before, during or after elections by those hired as thugs by politicians to do their bidding on pecuniary terms. It is highly regrettable that is spite of preachment and advocacy by well meaning citizens towards evolving a violent free democratic environment, some citizens with narrow ambition and selfish interest have continued to look for ways to work against a violent free electoral process.”Community Policing
