…viral video showed the PVCs displayed on the floor
Barely four days to the general election, a bag filled with thousands of Permanent Voters’ Card (PVCs) of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) have been discovered in a forest in Nnewi, Anambra State.
The cards were reportedly found by hunters in Akamili, a community in the industrial town who later took to them to the premises of a radio station, Authority FM.
A viral video of the PVCs, made in the compound of authority FM in Nnewi, showed the PVCs displayed on the floor of the station with the two hunters standing beside them.
A female staff of the radio station who ran short commentary on the video, claimed most the cards belonged to people from Nnewi South Local Government Area.
She urged those yet to get their PVCs to visit the station to confirm if they could find theirs.
Another staff of the FM station who simply identified himself as Ikenna confirmed that he received the PVCs, and that they have all been taken to the Obi of Umudim community in Nnewi.
Station manager of Authority FM, Mr Charles Ede, when contacted, said he was off duty when the cards were brought, adding that his staff members have reported to him about the incident.
“I was off duty when the incident happened, but one of my staff members received the hunters when they came. I will send you his number,” he said.
Attempt to reach INEC Public Relations Officer in the State, Dr Ikechukwu Agu for reaction was unsuccessful, but a staff of the commission said the report which might not be untrue, is yet to be posted in any of their platforms.
