5 INEC ad hoc officials arrested for thumb-printing ballot papers in Yesterday’s re-run election

Five ad hoc officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Imo were on Saturday arrested for thumb-printing ballot papers in the governorship re-run election in the state.

The officials were arrested at Omuma Primary School in Oru East local government following an order by Mike Igini, one of the Resident Electoral Commissioners deployed to Imo for the election.

The REC for Imo, Gabriel Ada, who confirmed the arrest, said the officials were already in police custody.

Mr. Ada said the ad hoc workers connived with agents of a political party to thumb-print ballot papers leading to their arrest.

In the same vein, the election has been cancelled in Ozuh Primary School, Omuma following the arrest of 25 persons claiming to be INEC officials, by military men.

The arrested persons and the election materials in their possession were taken to the Oru East local government headquarters.
