INEC says it is currently investigating the viral video of extortion in Enugu East Local Government Area of Enugu State during the collection of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs).

Mr Rex Achumie, Head of Department of Voter Education and Publicity in the Enugu State branch of INEC made this known on Monday in Enugu.

The video showed a woman extorting N1,000 each from registrants who wanted to collect their PVCs.


She said in the video that the N1,000 was to cover her transport fare and other stress she went through to get the cards to a primary school in a neighbourhood in the local government area.

Achumie said the woman in question is not a staff or ad-hoc staff of INEC.
