Boko Haram Planning On Bombing Polling Centres

The Federal Government yesterday raised the alarm over plans by Boko Haram insurgents to attack polling units during the  elections.

It also alleged that the group had perfected plans to collect, buy or steal Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) of female voters, hand them over to female suicide bombers and create access for them into polling centres where they will detonate bombs and kill voters.

The Coordinator of the National Information Centre, Mr. Mike Omeri and security officials briefed reporters in Abuja.

He urged Nigerians, especially female voters, to be mindful of their PVCs, to ensure they don’t get into the hands of bad elements.

“By this information, therefore, Nigerians, especially female electors, are warned to remain vigilant, guard and preserve their PVCs to avoid the possibility of their being lost to these bad elements, who will put them to untoward uses”, Omeri said.

Speaking on the 7,500 AU-backed multinational force, he said the force is to be composed of troops from countries in the Lake Chad Basin Commission areas.
