According to Daily Trust, INEC has loaded into four trucks the BVAS and other relevant sensitive documents used in the November 11 Kogi State governorship election. Accompanied by heavy security, the electoral umpire relocated to Abuja.

The Mail recalls that Kogi election tribunal has also ran away from the State to the National Judicial Council complex in Jabi Abuja because of the security threats in Lokoja.

“The materials used in prosecuting the November 11 governorship election are no longer safe here (in Kogi) because of incessant attacks on INEC officials, offices and tribunal members by thugs sponsored by unknown politicians. Therefore, the commission ordered the removal of the materials to a safe place,” a source told Daily Trust.
