The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has raised an alarm over fake identity cards for security personnel on election duty.
Governorship and state assembly elections will hold on March 18 in 28 states across the country.
While there have been concerns about possible violence, the security agencies have assured of adequate deployment of personnel to polling units.

Okoye said that identity cards for security personnel on election duty are issued by security agencies alone, not “the INEC”.
“The attention of the commission has been drawn to an identity card for security personnel bearing the name and logo of the commission with the inscription “complete access” boldly written in red at the bottom of it,” the statement reads.
“We wish to state categorically that the identity card did not emanate from the Commission. Identity cards for security personnel on election duty were issued by the security agencies and not the Commission.
