“Let me categorically state that the ballot papers are not thumbprinted and not real. They are just specimen used to enlighten voters in Jigawa state,” he said.

Abdullahi added that the suspects said the ballot papers were on transit to Dutse, Jigawa capital, with the intention to distribute them to the rural areas for election enlightenment.

The spokesman said that the two suspects are now under interrogation, while the investigation is ongoing.
