Janet Speaks

Janet told Citi News that on Tuesday at about 2:30pm, She saw two boxes falling off from a speeding pickup heading for the Agona Nkwanta Direction. “So we did not even mind until we saw that some school kids wanted to take them.

I then asked one of my female apprentice to bring them in anticipation that the owner will return for them. So I kept them in my shop until this morning when I heard on radio that some boxes were missing. I was assisted by some friends to contact you. 

That’s all that happened” Citi News’ Obrempong Yaw Ampofo together with colleague journalist from Skyy Power Fm took the two ballot boxes (one broken) to the Kwesimintsim police station. A call was then placed to the Regional EC office. 

EC confirms boxes

The Deputy Western Regional Director of the Electoral Commission Godwin Tawiah Okley after visiting the Kwesimintsim Police Station confirmed to Citi News that ” the two boxes are copies of the new EC ballot boxes for the 2016 general elections”. 

Journalist and EC write statements

The police officer at post at the Kwesimintsim Police command directed Kwabena Amofa Akuaku, one of the journalists that assisted in transporting the boxes from Apowa to Kwesimintsim Police Station and the EC official to write their statements.

Current location of the boxes

The two boxes are now in the custody of the Kwesimintsim Police Command pending further investigations.

The EC should be more vihilant. If ballot boxes, as bulky as it is could be stolen then the ballot papers also have an equal chance of being squandered.
EC WATCH IT!
