Osun Police arrested INEC’s Supervisor and two other people for manipulation.

 

THE NATION REPORTERS reports that Osun State Police Command apprehended a corps member, a supervisor working with the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC), and one other person over manipulation of distribution of Permanent Voter Cards in Osu, Osun State.

The police added that 38 Permanent Voter’s Cards were recovered from the suspects.

A statement signed by the spokesperson of Osun police Command, Yemisi Opalola, read that its officers have also launched a manhunt for two members of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), Wale Ojo and Ijamakinwa Olaoluwa, for ordering the corps member, Orji Desmond Nkenna, to give a PVC belonging to a particular voter to another person.

The statement read in part, “On 30th June, 2022 at about 1040hrs, the complainant reported at Osu Division that, on 29th June, 2022, at about 1000hrs, he went to Independent National Electoral Commission office located at the Atakumosa West Local Government Area, Osu, Osun State, to collect his permanent Voter Card but could not find it.

“He consequently demanded for the register and discovered that, one Orji Desmond Nkenna, a corps member attached to INEC office as an ad hoc staff in charge of Voter Cards’ distribution has collected his PVC on the order of one Wale Ojo and Ijamakinwa Olaoluwa, now at large, both members of the Peoples Democratic Party for financial transaction.

“On receipt of the complaint, police detectives immediately swang into action and arrested the principal suspect along with the INEC supervisor to the alleged corps member, Mrs Makanjuola Bilahu, ‘f’, aged 58 years, and one Mr. Oluwatobi Ogini, ‘m’, aged 32 years, to investigate the level of their involvement.”

The Osun PDP Caretaker Chairman, Dr. Akindele Adekunle, however, said no member of the party would get involved in any illegal act and “It could be part of a grand plan of the APC to indict our members.

“But I want to assure you that our party members are law-abiding and not capable of engaging in actions that will bring the party to disrepute.”
