A driver with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Delta State got mobbed on Thursday for trying to allegedly divert election materials.
The angry mob descended on the driver and gave him a savage beating in Asaba for allegedly diverting from the route taken by other drivers.
After loading election materials for Ethiope East and West from the Central Bank premises in the INEC pick-up van, the driver is said to have been stopped by the suspicious mob who also observed that he had no police escort.
The crowd thereafter descended on him when he could not provide any satisfactory explanations for his action.
It took the intervention of the police to save the driver form being lynched.
