At the close of polls Sunday, Electoral Commission officials at the Tamale South Constituency in the Northern Region could not get official vehicle to transport the ballot boxes and other materials to the Tamale District Police Headquarters.
The ballot boxes were then put at the booth of the Murano SUV and driven to the Police headquarters with the Presiding officer, Musah Mohammed while party agents rode behind the vehicle on motorbikes.
Contained in the ballot boxes were 49 cast votes each for the presidential and parliamentary elections.
Meanwhile, tension erupted at the Police headquarters when unused ballot papers from the Tamale North Constituency were taken away by one of the electoral officials.
After an almost chaotic scene at the police deadquarters, the unused ballot papers were brought and surrended to the police for records and safekeeping.
