According to the police spokesman, said that the suspect was apprehended inside a business center when she was making photocopies of the election materials.
“She was arrested with 550 different INEC materials.
“The laptop she used in printing the materials had been recovered and she couldn’t give a good account of how she came in possession of the materials.
“The case has been transferred to State Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba for further investigation,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa has announced that an investigation has been launched into the alleged threat against Igbos issued by the Lagos State Parks Management Committee Chairman, Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo.
Owohunwa stated this while during an interview TV Arise News on the preview of the governorship and state assembly elections slated for Saturday.
MC Oluomo, in a viral video, had threatened that Igbo people living in Lagos should not bother to come to the polls if they will not vote for the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC).
“We have begged them. If they don’t want to vote for us, it is not a fight. Tell them, mama Chukwudi, if you don’t want to vote for us, sit down at home. Sit down at home,” he said.
Reacting to it, Lagos CP said, “We condemn in strongest possible terms any act, statement that could be interpreted, speech that could be interpreted deeply as political tension. With regards to this specific video, it is currently a subject of an investigation.”
