The suspect who is said to be loyal to one of the parties, grabbed the ballot papers from the National Youth Service Corps members at Polling Unit 026, Gayam Ward, Lafia in Nasarawa State on Saturday and ran away.
While policemen struggled in vain to arrest her, the lady was chased by some soldiers on Makurdi Road who retrieved some of the ballot papers from her.
Mr Peter Bitrus, a domestic election observer who disclosed that the incident occurred just 30 minutes after Salamatu, wife of Governor Tanko Al-Makura, voted at the unit, some suspected thugs working with the lady aided her escape.“It was a conspiracy.
The governor’s wife voted in this polling unit and we expected that security would be tight here.
“The exercise had been largely peaceful before this woman came and caused pandemonium. She was dressed in a long black gown and she hid the papers under the gown.”
