Four workers of the Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC] in Bauchi State have been kidnapped by armed men.
The incident was said to have taken place at Jamare Local Government Registration Area 02 with Polling Unit Code 010.
A staff of INEC who was lucky to have escaped said the armed men came with seven Toyota Hilux Vans, and took away the staff and all voting materials.
He said, “Four of our staff in Jamare LGA Registration Area 02 with Polling Unit Code 010 have been abducted with voting materials. The place was invaded by heavily armed security operatives who came in seven Toyota Hilux Vans, and took the four INEC officials to Jamare LGA to perfect their plots.”
After declaring the March 9 gubernatorial election inconclusive, INEC had arranged for rerun poll today to determine the outright winner of the race.
