The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), says all the three thousand two hundred and eighty-one BVAS machines delivered by its headquarters to Cross River State are intact, assuring that no one has been removed from its office in Calabar, contrary to some media reports.
Addressing journalists, security agencies and political party representatives at the Commission’s Headquarters in Calabar, the Cross River State Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, Professor Gabriel Yomere, said the fake report was aimed at causing problems in the state.
Some media reports had claimed that some of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BIVAS) machines were moved into the Cross River State Governor’s lodge, but INEC urged the public to disregard the allegation.

INEC said the security cameras dedicated to the storage facility have been reviewed.
