PORTLAND, Jamaica- Annette Aarons, mother of Lomorra Dillon, says Mark "Buju Banton" Myrie was prevented from entering Moore Town where her teenage daughter is hoping to dethrone incumbent, Colonel Wallace Sterling in an election.

Aarons said Myrie was turned back by the police force as he turned up in the community to show support for Dillon. She expressed that as a Maroon, Myrie would have had a vote in Sunday’s poll and that her daughter was counting on the vote.

“He would have vote for her because he is a Moore Town Maroon and he has a say in the affairs of Moore Town,” Aarons said.
