There are reports that fears have gripped Yoruba indigenes living in Malaysia as the community prepare to elect a new president.

According to a concerned Nigerian living in the country, the two candidates vying for the position are said to be influential and powerful individuals, who are working hard and stopping at nothing to win the coveted seat.

Slated for Sunday, March 20, 2016, the election's major candidates are identified as Adedire Luqmon and Adeniyi Olaleye.

Both contenders according to Instablog9ja, are members of a popular social club, the Millionaire Club, which has been likened to the Island Club in Lagos.

Though the contenders are said to have remained cool headed, what has become worrisome according to reports are the attitudes of their followers, who are beginning to create panic and fear in the residents of the Yoruba communities in the country.
