Police arrest 10 for printing Presidential poll ballot papers

Ten people have been arrested in Utako, Abuja, where they were allegedly printing ballot papers for the forthcoming presidential election.
Residents of the area informed the police of the suspects' activities on Monday afternoon. When the police arrived at the scene, the printer and nine others said they were contractors for the Independent National Electoral Commission.
The electoral body, however, denied engaging any local contractors for the printing of ballot papers, leading to the arrest of the 10 suspects.
One of the suspects later confessed to the police that they were contracted to print the ballot papers by a politician on behalf of a top presidency official with the intent to circulate the materials in the north during the presidential election.
