Anxiety has gripped some opposition politicians in Kogi state as the state government has allegedly acquired equipment to disrupt telecommunications services to make it impossible to communicate during the coming elections.
A credible source informed that the All Progressive Congress (APC) government in the state has procured three network jammers, mounted on two Toyota SUVs and a BMW vehicle for this purpose.
The vehicles are said to have been parked within the premises of Government House, Lokoja.
According to the source, the plan is to ensure that there will be no real-time communication access on Election Day, totally voter figures emanating from the various polling units and wards across the state.
