The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has said that those engaged in multiple registration will be fished out and prosecuted.

The Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Adamawa State, Mr Kasim Gaidam, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Yola on Friday.

Gaidam who expressed worry over the new development in the state said such will not be allowed to continue.

“As the last minute for the suspension of the Continuous Voters Registration (CVR) approaches, the commission has noticed multiple registration in the State.

“According to our data verification system, we have found so many duplication of registration.

“The case is so much in the state and the commission will close the registration on Aug. 17, 2018,” Gaidam said.

However, He said at least, 353, 000 eligible voters had registered in the CVR in the state.

The REC, also appealed to registered voters to collect their Permanent Voter Cards, PVCs, adding that about 200,000 PVCs are awaiting collection in the state.
