The Ondo State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has allegedly punched and removed the tooth of a staff of the Commission, Mr. George Ala at his official residence in Akure.
A source close to THELENZ revealed that the staff got the beating of his life because he could not turn on the quarter’s generating set on time.
Ala who was attached to his house as a gatekeeper was recently drafted to the Security Unit of the Commission and was posted to man the Igbatoro residential quarters of INEC officials in Akure.
The source said the REC is found of harassing staff of the Commission, especially those that are working directly with him.
THELENZ also gathered that Mr. Rufus Akeju is running the affairs of the Commission as one-man business and ruling like an emperor.
According to the source who prefers not to be named, “trouble started when electricity supply was interrupted, so the gatekeeper was instructed to put on the generating set and the security man encountered a problem while trying to start the generator as the engine refused to start.
The man was battling with the engine, but unknown to him Akeju was already at his back and with provocation, he hit him in the face and his tooth removed”, The source said.
THELENZ also gathered that the victim received treatment at a private hospital located in Alagbaka.
However, when THELENZ put a call to the victim, his number was switched off.
