The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has raised the alarm over plans by some unscrupulous Nigerians to use fake security identity cards at polling centres across the country in order to influence the governorship and state houses of assembly elections holding today, Saturday,18 March 2022 nationwide.

 A statement by the National Commissioner and Chairman Information and Voters Education Committee, Barr Festus Okoye, alerted that the fake security identity cards did not emanate from the commission.

Okoye wrote:  “The attention of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has been drawn to an identity card for security personnel bearing the name and logo of the Commission with the inscription “Complete Access” boldly written in red at the bottom of it.

“We wish to state categorically that the identity card did not emanate from the Commission. Identity cards for security personnel on election duty were issued by the security agencies and not the Commission. 

“Anyone bearing an identity card allegedly issued by the Commission for security personnel can only be on illegal duty. Such a person is liable to arrest and prosecution. 

“The public is alerted to this diabolical action of some misdirected elements and to report any such persons to the security agencies.”
