There was confusion on Saturday at the Atebheda Primary School, ward 7, unit 3, Agbede, in Etsako west local government area of Edo State over two confusing voters’ lists at the polling units.
It was gathered that there was variation in the voters’ list displayed at the ward and the ones in possession of INEC officials.
Daily Bells gathers that trouble started when some eligible voters’ names were found on the list displayed for identification, but their names were conspicuously not available in the list with INEC officials.
As at the time of filing this report, security operatives were busy appealing to the feuding parties for calm.
Meanwhile, there was also uproar at the ward of allegation of some electorate being in possession in possession of multiple voters’ cards.

Beside these incidents, the election witnessed large turnout of voters who trouped out as early as 7.30 am.
