Zamfara bye-election: Missing INEC officials found
The two ad hoc staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) who went missing have been found.
The two INEC adhoc staff were declared missing during the Saturday’s bye-election in Bakura constituency of Zamfara.
Recall that the registration area supervisor of Bakura ward 001 while presenting her report had stated that she did not see either the staff or the election results from two polling units.
Bukura recorded incidents of violence and ballot-box snatching, forcing INEC to declare the exercise inconclusive.
However, the INEC director of voter education and publicity, Nick Dazang while speaking to newsmen on Monday confirmed that the staff had been found “hale and hearty”.
“I am exceedingly glad to report that the administrative secretary, Zamfara, Garba Lawal, just informed me that our ad hoc staff who went missing had been found, hale and hearty,” Dazang said.
“According to him, they had run for their dear lives and in the process could not retrace their ways back. May Almighty God be praised for this wonderful development.
“The REC Zamfara, administrative secretary and the security agencies who spent sleepless nights and worked assiduously to recover the staff equally deserve our appreciation. Kudos to them and more grease to their elbows.”
