Policemen attached to the Bori Police Divisional Headquarters in Rivers State have arrested a man with over two thousand Permanent Voter Cards, PVCs, suspected to have been stolen. The man was reportedly intercepted with packs of PVCs at a police checkpoint on Unity Road, which links Opopo-Nkoro and Ogoni axis of the State. The PVCs were concealed in a travel bag.
The suspect is from Nkoro in Opobo-Nkoro Local Government Area, during investigation, he confessed to be a member of one of the major opposition political parties in Rivers State.
The man was arrested after he failed to explain to the police how he came about the bunch of PVCs.
“The suspect was arrested when he was passing through the Unity road linking Opobo, Ogoni and Andoni. Some PVCs were intercepted from him numbering over 2000. He refused to say anything but the Police later took him to the Police Division at Bori.”
It would be recalled that before the 2015 general elections, it was reported that some hoodlums invaded Ward Ten in Nkoro and carted away PVCs meant for the area.
