US terrorism convict appears in Edo State voters' register | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

A young Nigerian, Farouk Abdulmutallab, who was jailed in the United States in 2012 for terrorism offences appeared on the INEC voters’ register and may vote in Edo state election today.

Governor Adams Oshiomhole drew attention to the existence of AbdulMuttalab’s portrait in a fake voters register now in circulation.

Oshiomhole spoke about AbdulMutallab during a visit to him by the United States Consul General in Lagos, Mr F John Bray.

The Edo governor said he was shocked to see the portrait of the “underwear bomber” in the fake register, but with a Benin name.

Governor Oshiomhole who raised concern about the duplication of the voter’s register by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said “the foundation for credible election is the voter’s register. Once the voter’s register is manipulated, then you have problems.
