Truckload of ballot papers arrested in Calabar

Some youths in Ogoja local government area of Cross River State, on Thursday, apprehended a commercial truck, conveying ballot papers travelling out of the state.

Our reporter gathered that the truck, with Enugu State registration number, was stopped by youths in Egbung community, during a routine check of vehicles by members of a taskforce working along the highway in the community.

An eyewitness said when the truck was opened, it was discovered that it was laden with unused ballot papers belonging to Boki local government for 2015 State Constituency election, as well as computer equipment and documents.

The eyewitness said the driver claimed to have the authority of INEC to move them from Calabar where he said he was coming from.

“After being interrogated by the task force, he then said he was not certain of his destination as and this raised suspicion and he was apprehended and the police was invited,” the eyewitness said.

Resident Electoral Commissioner for Cross River State, Dr Frankland Briyai, said he had been notified of the development and had reported it to appropriate security agencies for investigation.

He said he will speak more on the matter when investigations have been concluded.
