Comic Nollywood actor, Bishop Imeh better known as Okon Lagos has tackled the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for arresting and harassing  electorates who sold their votes  in the just concluded governorship election in Ekiti State.

Naija News had earlier reported that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), disclosed that it met with the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to guard against vote-buying and selling.

The operatives of the anti-graft agency had arrested alleged vote-buyers with a bag of cash while trying to induce voters.

Amongst those arrested during the governorship election is a party agent at Ola Oluwa Grammar School on Ilawe Road, Ado Ekiti.

Reacting to the development, the comic actor slammed the anti-graph agency for haressing poor and hungry electorates selling their votes.

Although, he condemned vote-selling, he asked the EFCC to pick delegates up and leave the poor  masses alone.

He wrote; ‘‘EFCC leave poor, hungry ordinary men and women that sell their votes in Ekiti. The act is condemnable , but it is circumstantial. There is no knee that hunger cannot bend. Stop flexing musles with poor people. Pick up the delegates.”
