Electorate at some units in the four local government areas where the rerun of the Osun State governorship election is taking place have criticised the heavy presence of security officials at the polling booths.

The electorate said that the deployment of policemen and soldiers to their areas was meant to intimidate them.

The rerun is taking place in Orolu, Osogbo, Ife North and Ife South Local Government Areas simultaneously. It is expected that the Independent National Electoral Commission would announce the results of the rerun today.

At Garage Olode, in Ife south local government area, the crew of the Silverbird Television were not allowed to move closer to the polling units.

The policeman deployed in the place said that he could not guarantee the safety of the STV reporters.
