82b829eb27171db60c5df4aa148045f7The Federal Government on Thursday exposed plans by the extremist group, Boko Haram, to attack polling units during this month’s general election.

It said the sect has perfected plans to collect, buy or steal the Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) of eligible female voters, give them to female suicide bombers to pave way for them to carry out their deadly activities during the elections.

The Coordinator of the National Information Centre and Director-General of National Orientation Agency, Mr. Mike Omeri, stated this while briefing journalists alongside spokespersons for other security agencies in Abuja.

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

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

Speaking on the 7,500 African Union-backed multinational force to combat Boko Haram, Omeri said the force is composed of troops from countries in the Lake Chad Basin Commission areas.
