The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has denied the allegations that some politicians, especially in Kogi Central Senatorial District, were caught with ballot papers ahead of February 23 elections.

The commission said the allegations were untrue and insisted that all sensitive materials are in the commission's custody or in the Central Bank's vaults.

In a series of thread on its official Twitter handle, the commission said only duly stamped and dated ballot papers with the endorsement of the INEC Presiding Officer's signature are valid and will be counted for election.
