Voters alleged foul play, threaten INEC officials over BVAS failure in Nasarawa
The voting exercise has been temporarily suspended in government college unit 30 B and 30 C of Bakin Rijiya in Lafia local government in Nasarawa State over the failure of the Bimodal Voters Accreditation System (BVAS).
The BVAS, according to the polling officer stop functioning after accrediting about 58 voters.
The polling officer explained that he has called the engineer designated to respond to malfunctioning machines but has not responded.
Voters at PU have alleged foul play by the INEC officials, noting that the INEC was supposed to have sent two BEVAS knowing well that the units were merged.
Voters at the PU have insisted that the officials of INEC must correct the fault and allow them cast their votes else will not leave the voting venue.
Mr. Illiyasu Mohammed, a voter told The Guardian that more than one hour ago voting stopped because of the BEVAS.
He appealed to INEC to make available the backup BEVAS so as not to disenfranchise patriotic voters.
Voters have refused to leave as they await action from INEC.
