Police Speaks On Purported Death Of NYSC Member

Meanwhile, the Federal Capital Territory Police Command has debunked the purported death of a corps member who was almost lynched by angry voters in Abuja, on Saturday over alleged electoral malpractice.

Naija News reported that the incident occurred at the polling unit inside LEA Primary School in the Lugbe area of the FCT.

An eyewitness who spoke with DAILY POST said the NYSC member was caught allegedly thumb-printing ballot papers in favour of a political party.

However, the spokesperson for the FCT Police Command, Josephine Adeh, in a statement on Sunday said its officer that was seen in the video, alongside his colleagues, didn’t tamper with thumb-printed ballot papers, but only assisted officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission in salvaging the electoral materials.

Adeh further noted that the incident began when INEC officials arrived at the Polling Unit with incomplete electoral materials which angered the electorate who resorted to attacking the officials and destroying the materials alleging an attempt at disenfranchisement.
