The Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS, has seized 191 Permanent Voter Cards, PVCs, from foreigners as part of efforts to ensure that non-Nigerians do not participate in the general elections, a statement said.
The statement was issued by Mr Chukwuemeka Obua, the Public Relations Officer of NIS in Abuja yesterday.
It stated that the service also recovered 57 Temporary Voter Cards, TVCs, 367 old national identity cards and 11 old TVC slips from the foreigners.
According to the statement, the service also seized 68 new national identity cards, 10 birth certificates and three NIS registration certificates.
It said that NIS personnel also seized six Gada Local Government Community Tax Cards from foreigners and two driver’s licences belonging to Nigerians.
“Other items found in the possession of foreigners include one Nigerian Army Identity Card for occupants in the barracks, one primary school certificate and one data page of the Nigeria Passport,” it said.
The statement said that the items were recovered in Sokoto, Jigawa and Zamfara states.
It said the development was as a result of the ongoing nationwide mop-up operation against irregular migrants across the country ahead of the forthcoming general elections.
