Police operatives in Kaduna state have arrested an agent suspected to be working for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Naija News reports that alleged agent was apprehended with voters’ register at a polling unit in Manchok Registration Area Centre (RAC), Kaura Local Government Area (LGA) of Kaduna State, on Saturday.
The agent, identified as Samuel Semion, who was caught with the register at Uguwan Aba Dube I Polling Unit in Manchok RAC, said the document was distributed to all party agents in the area by a senior party member.
Semion was arrested after the attention of the officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security agents were drawn to the development.
The INEC Supervisor in the polling unit, Cletus Joseph asked the police to arrest the suspect when the matter was reported to him.
Joseph claimed that the action of the suspect contravened the Electoral Act.
“We have received similar information from our officials in various polling units that APC agents have in their possession INEC Voters’ Register.
“I want to categorically say that no agent is entitled to (hold) the Voters’ Register for any reason and anyone caught with it should be arrested.”
The Divisional Police Officer in the Local Government, CSP Daniel Mbwale, seized the document and ordered security agents to seize the documents from all APC agents in all polling units in the area.
