The Vice Chancellor is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
It is the second report of disruption of electoral process that has occurred in Ekiti since the election started.
Earlier, Senator Dino Melaye of Ekiti State shared a video of an incident that we can now confirm occurred in Ekiti State.
The video showed a scene at a polling unit that was rowdy, with ballot papers scattered everywhere while some persons were mentioning the name of the individual that had a hand in the act.
The Senator had questioned where the 30,000 police officials deployed to Ekiti State for the governorship election were at the time of the incident that Bounce News can now confirm occurred at Polling Unit 10 that is opposite Old State Police Command.
Voting has ended and counting of ballot papers has started in different polling units.
After casting their votes some voters are at polling units waiting patiently for the results to be announced.
The police have not issued a statement on the arrest of the Vice Chancellor.
Please, share the story with your friends and loved ones to help sustain democracy and bring an end to acts that could mar electoral process.
