74 Deaths Recorded In 2023 Elections – EU

The European Union says no fewer than 74 persons were reportedly killed by hoodlums during the 2023 general elections in Nigeria.

According to their release yesterday, the fatalities were recorded in 101 violent incidents documented during the 2023 electioneering period.

The union claimed that all the recorded violent incidents occurred during the campaigning period, and the killings became more increased when the election drew nearer, thereby creating what they call “a particularly insecure environment in the southern states”. 

The report also added that in several northern states, systematic attacks by political thugs on rallies and political opponents were observed, and the use of violence obstructed the campaigns, disturbed the elections, and suppressed voter participation.
