“In Kaura Namoda town, where our Senatorial candidate for Zamfara North voted, only 100 Senatorial ballot papers where brought while 1000 Presidential ballot papers where brought, that is on acceptable”, he alleged.
Matawalle added that he received a report of three ballot box snatching and also witnessed where an APC councillor was sharing money and and directing voters where exactly to thumb print.
He said information from Gusau indicates that seven polling units were without electoral materials.
