The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has raised an alarm over fake identity cards for security personnel on election duty.

Mr. Fesus Okoye, National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee of INEC, raised the alarm in a statement on Friday night.

According to him, identity cards for security personnel on election duty were issued by the security agencies and not INEC.

“The attention of the 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.

“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,” Okoye said.

On Saturday, Nigerians across 28 states would file out to elect governors and house of assembly members.

There has been concern over likelihood of violence.
