INEC clears air on report thugs invaded Catholic church, carted away PVC reg machines

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Lagos State said that thugs did not cart away its voter enrollment machines in Surulere, Lagos State.

DAILY POST had reported that on Friday, thugs invaded INEC Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) centre, situated at St. Bridget Catholic Church ljesha, in Surulere, and carted away INEC enrollment machines.

Reacting to the development, INEC’s Public Relations Officer in Lagos State, Mrs Adenike Oriowo, told NAN that though the exercise was distrupted because of the surge, no machine was stolen.

“There were issues in the said CVR centre but orderliness was restored and the exercise continued smoothly.

“We have moved the registration in that centre to another polling unit in the area, and our officials have continued with the registration.

“People should be patient. We shall register as many people as possible. If people continue to disrupt the process, the opportunity to register more people before the deadline will be interrupted.

“Our commitment is to register as many people as possible and we will try to do so within the limited time,” the INEC spokesperson said.
