Hypertensive Man Slumped And Died After Political Thugs Invaded His Home During The Elections In Lagos Last Saturday

A hypertensive patient, Simon Maduekwe, has died from the shock he suffered after suspected political thugs invaded his residence on Fatomi Crescent, Off Bajulaiye Compound, Shomolu, Lagos State, while pursuing a yet-to-be-identified man using his mobile phone to capture their violent actions at one of the polling units in the area during the state governorship and state house of assembly elections.

Punch reports that late Maduewke and other residents of the area came out to cast their votes for their preferred candidate. As voting was ongoing, it was learned that some suspected political thugs started creating tension and warned the voters against voting for another candidate other than their preferred candidate. However, after he cast his vote, the late Maduekwe left the polling unit for his house.

His son, Chuka, said his late father was at home when one of the political thugs, while subjecting some of the voters to different forms of intimidation and suppression, spotted a resident capturing the moments on his mobile phone.

The political thug, thereafter, raised the alarm which attracted the attention of his accomplices and Chuka said they gave the resident, who firmly held onto his phone, a hot chase. In a desperate attempt to escape, the aggrieved son said the yet-to-be-identified resident ran into his father’s residence, adding that thugs chased after him.

Chuka explained that Maduekwe, who was not aware of what had transpired outside his home, upon sighting the thugs on his premises, thought they were there to attack him for voting against their preferred candidate, adding that his father slumped at the sight of the hoodlums coming towards him.
