The suspect who is said to be loyal to  one of the parties, grabbed the  ballot papers from the National Youth Service Corps members at Polling Unit 026, Gayam Ward,  Lafia in  Nasarawa State on Saturday and ran away.
While policemen struggled in vain to arrest her, the lady was chased by some soldiers on Makurdi Road who retrieved some of the ballot papers from her.
Mr Peter Bitrus, a domestic election observer who disclosed that the incident occurred just 30 minutes after Salamatu,  wife of Governor Tanko Al-Makura,  voted at the unit,  some suspected thugs working with the lady aided  her  escape.“It was a conspiracy.
 
The governor’s wife voted  in this polling unit and we expected  that security would be tight here.
“The exercise had  been largely peaceful before this woman came and caused pandemonium. She was dressed in a long black gown and she hid the papers under the gown.”
