But some supporters from both sides stormed the streets in parts of the state, claiming their party had won. Daily Trust observed that celebrations started across the metropolis shortly after results of the election which attributed victory to PDP went viral on social media.

While PDP supporters were jubilating for dislodging the incumbent governor of the state, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, those of the ruling APC were also celebrating for the latter’s re-election.
However, it was noticed that security was beefed up within the state metropolis as heavily armed security personnel were posted at strategic places to prevent any breakdown of law and order.

At INEC headquarters, security was also beefed up as roads leading to the commission’s headquarters were barricaded by armed security men. It was further observed that only accredited persons are allowed to gain access to the building.
