INEC Alerts Public To Fake Security Tags

 The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has alerted the public to fake security identity tags with the name and logo of the commission.

The Commission in a statement issued by its National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, called on Nigerians to report anyone found with such a tag, saying anyone bearing the said tag is on illegal duty and is liable to arrest and prosecution.

Okoye said the Commission’s attention had been “drawn to an identity card for security personnel bearing the name and logo of INEC with the inscription “Complete Access” boldly written in red at the bottom of it.

“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.

“Anyone bearing an identity card allegedly issued by the Commission for security personnel can only be on illegal duty.

“Such a person is liable to arrest and prosecution.

“The public Is alerted to this diabolical action of some misdirected elements and to report any such person to the security agencies.”
