The Nigerian Police Force and Nigeria’s secret police, the SSS have begun Investigations into the interception of sensitive materials used for the prosecution of the 2015 general elections by the Boki area office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

A truck conveying the materials was Intercepted this morning along the Ogoja-Abakaliki highway.

And, investigation follows the nod of the Resident Electoral Commissioner in Cross River State, Dr. Frankland Briyai who told CrossRiverWatch that he will do all necessary to ensure the law takes it course.

Briyai told CrossRiverWatch in a telephone interview that he cringed when he heard the news and does not want anything to tarnish his image especially at this critical time as the country prepares for the general polls.

He said the commission is permitted to auction off non sensitive materials like signages and billboards for recycling while the sensitive materials are to be destroyed.

He wondered why the electoral officer in charge of Boki area office had sanctioned the release of the material as well as whether the storekeeper checked the truck before it departed.

Several security agencies and reporters have been calling the CrossRiverWatch news desk for more information regarding the matter with CrossRiverWatch’s Elijah Ugani still on ground for more updates.
