Corps member caught manipulating votes in Enugu

 A female member of the National Youth Service Corps and a presiding officer in Saturday's presidential and National Assembly elections in Enugu State were caught manipulating and changing the votes of Rabiu Kwankwaso, a candidate for the New Nigeria Peoples Party, over those of Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi.

The member of the aforementioned corps is said to be from Kano State.

The incident occurred, according to reports, in one of the polling units in Abakpa Ward, a town with a lot of people living in it in the Enugu East Local Government Area of Enugu State.

She was said to have been caught by LP agents who had a keen eye and were quick to raise the alarm about the bad behavior of the officer in charge.

She was reportedly immediately surrounded by a crowd before polling unit security intervened to prevent what could have been a tragedy.

Our correspondent saw the NYSC member apologize in a viral video of the incident on Sunday. She also admitted that all corps members from northern Nigeria participating in the election in South-East were instructed to manipulate the results in favor of the former Kano State governor.

A result sheet with the LP presidential candidate's altered vote totals was shown in the video.

She admitted to being caught by LP party agents, saying, "I am ready to take any punishment. I am aware of the full consequences of my action." I'm sorry, but I was told to do this.

In the meantime, attempts to contact Victor Okafor, the Enugu state spokesman for the Independent National Electoral Commission, were unsuccessful due to his inability to return calls.
