Drama as officials at polling units in Abuja with thumb-printed ballot papers

There was drama at Aya Polling Unit in Abuja this morning when it was discovered that there were already thumb-printed ballot papers in the ballot boxes ad hoc officials brought to the unit.

The ad hoc officials who arrived at the unit at about 9:30 am explained that they were initially at the wrong polling unit, at Total Filling Station in Area 11.
According to them, it was after more than one hundred people had voted that they realized that they were at the wrong polling unit and moved to the Aya polling unit which turned out to be the right one.

Voters at the unit, however, insisted that the already cast ballots should be burnt and fresh voting should begin.
