The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has shifted voting in 141 polling units across four local governments in Bayels to Sunday.
This follows attacks by thugs in the affected areas who disrupted the process.
Chairman of INEC, Yakubu Mahmood disclosed this while briefing the media on Saturday.
Mahmood also announced that the voting in the House of Representatives election in Esan North, Esan South, and Igueben in Edo State has also been suspended. Voting in those areas will now be held on March 11 during the Governorship and state assembly election.

According to the INEC boss, the election was suspended because of an error in the ballot where the logo of Labour Party logo was missing from the ballot paper for the House of Representatives election in those three areas.
Mahmood also confirmed the attack on Gworza in Borno State but noted that there were no casualties. He identified the incident as a mortar attack on a petrol station near an INEC facility in the area. No INEC property or sensitive material was affected by the incident.
