The suspects are Yekini Nurudeen Abiodun, Jimoh Kazeem, Adeyemo Bahir, and Abidogun Ismail.
They were apprehended by EFCC agents at various polling locations after reliable information that they were exchanging votes for money in Osogbo, the state capital. With the exception of Abiodun, who was apprehended at Unit 2, Isale Agbara, Osogbo, the other three suspects were apprehended at Polling Unit 002, Ward 2, Ababu, Isale Osun, Osogbo.
The suspects will be charged in court once the ongoing investigations are completed.
