Anyone With ID Card All3gedly Issued By INEC For Security Personnel Is On Ill3g@l Duty – Okoye



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

The disclosure was made known in a statement on Friday, by Festus Okoye, the INEC National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee.

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

He noted that anyone bearing a f@ke identity card purportedly issued by the electoral umpire for security personnel is liable to arr4st and pros3cution.

The electoral body also urged the public to report anyone with such a security identity card to appropriate security agencies.

The statement reads:
“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 ill3gal duty. Such a person is liable to arr3st and pros3cution.

“The public is alerted to this di@bolical action of some misdirected elements and to report any such persons to the security agencies”
