The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it has detected and removed the names of 1,931 dead persons from the voters’ register in Kaduna State, ahead of the 2019 elections.

The Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in the state, Abdurahim Kasugama, said this on Tuesday when he received the Senate Committee on INEC in his office.

He said the names were uncovered during the recent display of voter register for claims and objections. He also announced that there were no claims of names of foreigners in the voters’ register, except for few cases of irregular images that were discovered and removed.

Corrections were also made in the names and ages of people who lodged complaints concerning their registration.
