A National Commissioner of INEC and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, announced this on Thursday.

“Prior to this incident, the commission had suspended the CVR in Orsu and Njaba Local Government areas of the state on account of insecurity while the exercise is taking place only at the INEC LGA office in Oru East, Oru West, Orlu and Ohaji-Egbema Local Government Areas of the state.”

“The Commission extends its condolences to the family of Nwokorie Anthony and prays that God will grant them the fortitude to bear the loss. The incident has been reported to security agencies to unravel the circumstances that led to this unfortunate incident and bring the culprits to justice,” Okoye said.

He urged the President General of the various Town Unions in Imo State as well as all the critical stakeholders to protect staff of the commission engaged in national assignment.

He said, “The safety and security of staff is of paramount importance to the commission, particularly with the devolution of the Voter Registration exercise beyond our state and Local Government Area offices across the nation in our determination to serve Nigerians better.”
