VERDICT: False


CLAIM: Multiple twitter handles including the official twitter handle of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) claimed that “In Ward 9, unit 15, Ego LGA, a leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Local Government Area (LGA) hijacked electoral materials and moved the polling booth to his hotel called “play house”.

Voters are not allowed to enter the hotel except you are an APC member. @PoliceNg, take note.’’


CDD fact-checkers discovered that the image used by the PDP is from the Facebook page of the hotel in question and it is from 2015.


Our observers on the ground confirmed that Egor Ward 9 unit 15 is actually, beside the Play House hotel and voting is going on peacefully as at 11 AM.


CONCLUSION

The claim is therefore false.
