A woman is being called a hero of Saturday’s elections for voting despite a brutal attack by hoodlums in Lagos.
It was learnt the incident occurred at a polling unit in the Surulere area of the state.
Voting in the presidential and National Assembly polls was ongoing when thugs stormed the location and destroyed election materials.
