The Nigerian Army has rebuked reports of soldiers escorting buses filled with fake voters.

 

Brig. Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, Director, Army Public Relations said the video making the rounds was fabricated, baseless, and the handiwork of mischief makers.

 

Nwachukwu explained that the buses were conveying staff members of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, and not fake voters as purported in the viral video.

 

In a statement he signed, Nwachukwu said the viral video was aimed at discrediting the reputation and questioning the apolitical stance of the Army in the Saturday’s governorship election.

 

The statement reads: “The mischief makers, using the social media, shared a video alleging that soldiers were escorting buses filled with fake voters into Anambra State.

 

“Even though such despicable propaganda images can easily be punctured by any keen observer, however for the sake of posterity, we wish to state without any equivocation, that no soldier of the Nigerian Army indulged in escorting fake voters into Anambra State.

 

“Contrary to the misleading information, the buses in question were conveying INEC permanent and adhoc staff for the election tasks in Anambra State.”

 

Nwachukwu assured residents of Anambra State of a peaceful environment during the conduct of the election.
