Officers of the Independent National Electoral electoral commission INEC and agents of political parties hurriedly fled INEC office in Ogbomoso following reports that armed hoodlums are planning to invade the collation center.
Ogbomoso North , one of the five local government areas in Ogbomoso zone, has 10 wards and 183 polling units , the largest in the zone.
The tensed atmosphere which later forced others outside the INEC office to seek for protection elsewhere , halted the collation exercise.
Also , top officials of the independent National Electoral Commission ordered that collation process should be stopped immediately .
The Returning Officer, Professor Rasheed Okunola and other collation officers were forced to leave the INEC office at Ogbomoso North Local Government.
Okunola was reconciling the results of the 10 wards in the local government when the report of security threat was received.
Officials of INEC accompanied by security agents on receiving reports that the people of Ogbomoso was set to cause violence, moved all the results to the town hall, at the palace of Soun in Ogbomoso popularly known as Ojude Oba.
A senior police officer earlier arrived at the INEC office in the Nigeria Police van to inquire from the presiding officer, the situation of things.
Okunola had told the senior police officer that he was rounding off, and announcement would be made shortly.
The results will be announced at the town hall, which has now been heavily guarded by soldiers.
Meanwhile Alhaji Bukola Badmis, Chairman Ogbomoso North APC was attacked by hoodlums suspected to be working for an opposition party.
