There is a heavy presence of security personnel at the Benin City office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) along Ramat Park.

Two Armoured Personnel Carriers (APCs) were stationed before and after the office while traffic is being diverted to follow one lane.
Gun-wielding policeman and soldiers were sighted on the premises
NO governorship election has generated the variant of heat like the Edo poll slated to hold across 192 wards today.
With a population of a little over 4 million people spread in 18 local government areas, Edo is neither the largest nor the richest state in Nigeria. Nasarawa, a local government in Nasarawa state boasts of a larger landmass than the South-South state. Yet, the election billed to take place today is one like no other in recent electioneering history in the land.
