Another vote another day of violence in Nigeria


Nigeria’s electoral process has once again been marred by violence as the country voted for 36 state governors.

Bombs exploded in the north-eastern city of Maiduguri, but no one was hurt.

At least three people have been killed there since Sunday.

Elsewhere soldiers shot one man and arrested a number of others for stealing ballot boxes across several states.

Still, there was no repeat of the orchestrated mob violence that left hundreds dead in the mostly Muslim north after President Goodluck Jonathan, a southern Christian, beat his northern rival Muhammadu Buhari, in last weeks presidential poll.

Claims of vote rigging continue to cause concern, yet international monitors say the election was the fairest seen in Nigeria for decades.
