Pictures have emerged of electorates being given jollof rice in a bid to get their votes.

From photos seen on Premium Times twitter handle, a truck was packed, while some people brought out bags containing disposable take-away packs of cooked rice.

The cooked jollof rice is being handed to electorates at Ilo Abito square, Polling Unit 001, Nsugbe ward, allegedly by the All Progressives Congress (APC), to convince people to vote for Tony Nwoye.

Investigations by Bounce News however so far reveal that the cooked rice came from a private individual trying to help electorates who were hungry and had been under the sun.

It is not yet clear, however, if there are any ties between the individual and the APC.
