Nigerian arrested for registering in limited registration exercise

The police in Tema have arrested a 32-year-old Nigerian man for allegedly registering in the recent Electoral Commission (EC)’s voter's limited registration exercise.

The man, Evangelist Vandal, allegedly took part in the exercise, aided by a Ghanaian, Solomon Kpakpo Addo, who served as his guarantor, according to a report by myjoyonline.com.

According to the report, the police detected the crime after a lady complained that Vandal had stolen her phone.

He is said to have been arrested and during investigations, an indelible ink was spotted on his finger, prompting questions as to how he got it.

The police reportedly discovered that he participated in the limited registration exercise and placed him in custody alongside his guarantor, Addo.
