10 NYSC members, soldier caught voting in General’s house

TEN corps members and a soldier were yesterday reportedly arrested at the home of a retired General and former NYSC Director, Gen. Edet Akpan, by men of the Department of Security Service for electoral offences in Akwa Ibom State.

The state Resident Electoral Commissioner, Barr Austin Okojie, gave this report while taking a break from the election to brief the press in Uyo, the state capital.

Okojie who reacted to general complaints about late arrival of result sheets and compromise by some INEC officials said INEC received sensitive materials on Tuesday, dispatched to local government areas on Thursday for early dispatch to polling units.

Okojie who reported cases of violence in Uyo, Ibesikpo, Nsit Ubium and Mkpat Enin, Nsit Ibom and Etinan local government areas said these are basically security issues and commended security agencies for being alive to their responsibilities.
