The Kano Police Command says it has arrested two suspects in possession of 14 bags of fake specimen ballot papers in Kano metropolis.
The Command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP Abdullahi Haruna, who confirmed this to newsmen in Kano on Thursday, said the suspects were apprehended around Metro Police Area Command.
He said that the suspects were arrested on Wednesday evening by some Police officers attached to Metro Area Command in the metropolis.
Haruna said during interrogation, the suspects said they came from Jigawa State, and that the materials were meant for sensitization and orientation purpose.
“The ballot papers are specimen, so, they are not genuine ballot papers,” Haruna explained.
He said an investigation was still ongoing, as the case had since been transferred to the state Criminal Investigation Development.
