#NigeriaDecides:15 party agents with ’20 laptops for results collation’ arrested in Katsina



The Katsina police command says it has arrested 15 suspected political party agents with about 20 laptop computers to be used for collating election results.


Gambo Isah, police spokesperson in the state, said in a statement on Saturday that a police investigation revealed that the suspects had constructed a situation room for the same purpose.


“Katsina state police command wishes to update the general public and indeed the media, on the arrest of suspected fifteen (15) Political party agents arrested with twenty (20) laptop computers allegedly with intent to hack into INEC servers to rig elections results,” the statement reads.


“The command wishes to state that it has carried out in-depth investigations with the assistance of independent computer expert and it was discovered that the political party in question was setting up a situation room, using a computer application software, for the purpose of collating elections results through their party agents, but not to hack into INEC servers with intent to rig elections results as allegedly reported.”


Isah said Kolo Yusuf, commissioner of police in the state, assured citizens that the command is working with other security agencies to ensure strict security across all RACs and polling units in the state.


He urged residents to go out and cast their votes without any fear of attack.


Over 80 million Nigerians are voting today to elect a president that will take over from President Muhammadu Buhari who is serving the second term of his eight years in office.
