    A top member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Aminu Ali Shana has been arrested in Kano State with 367 suspected Permanent Voters Cards, PVC.

    Kano State Police spokesman, Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, who confirmed the development to Daily Sun, revealed that the suspect had been taken into their custody, saying investigation had commenced.
    Aminu, who is the APC Chairman of the Yautan Arewa ward in Gabasawa Local Government Area of the State, was according to the police, arrested on October 14, 2022.

    It was reported that police had dispatched the suspected PVCs to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, for confirmation.

    After that, all the persons whose faces appeared on the cards might be invited for questioning.

    The offence contravenes Section 21 and 22 sub-section 1(a), (b) and (c) of the Electoral Act (amended).

    It will be recalled that the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) in Kano State had through its spokesperson, Sanusi Bature raised the alarm, alleging that some politicians in the State were hoarding/buying PVCs from voters in areas where they doubt their chances of performing well in the 2023 general elections.
