The police in Lokoja on Sunday confirmed three persons dead during the governorship election held in Kogi on Saturday.
The Commission of Police in Kogi, Mr Akeem Busari, who confirmed the deaths to newsmen, said that the command was still compiling its report on the poll to ascertain the actual number of casualties.
Busari also said 10 persons were arrested across the state during the election.
