Ahead of today’s governorship election Governor Adams Oshiomhole has alerted the public to the existence of a fake voters’ register in the state, which has the portrait of a convicted terrorist, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, popularly referred to as the “Underwear Bomber.”
Receiving the United States Consul General in Lagos, Mr. F John Bray, Oshiomhole said he was shocked to see the portrait of the “underwear bomber” in the fake register, but with a Benin name.
Abdulmutallab was convicted of attempting to detonate explosives hidden in his underwear on board an airline from Amsterdam to Detroit, Michigan, on December 25, 2009.
Governor Oshiomhole, who raised concern about the duplication of the voter’s register by INEC said “the foundation for credible election is the voters register. Once the register is manipulated, then you have problems.
