Nigeria Elections Full of Incidents

In the Presidential election on Saturday, Nigerians made it through with almost no violence problems which is unusual, the Star Tribune reported.

There have been at least 50 incidents found affecting around 120,000 polling stations around the country, Bloomberg Business Week said.

A statement from the Abuja-based Nigerian Election Situation Room reported some of these incidents as: children voting, intimidating the voters, and ballot-box snatching.

Not only were children able to vote in this election, the Star Tribune reported, but some of theparty officials were assisting the voters by helping them press their fingers to the paper when they needed an ink print.
