Ballot papers meant for use in Nigeria’s upcoming general elections have been found “unsecured” in the UK, according to Sahara Reporters.

The papers were reportedly found on the premises of Panther Printing Services, a local printing press in the Essex area of London.

The election materials, which include ballot papers for the presidential polls, were due in Nigeria earlier this week, before Saturday, February 14, the original date set aside for the polls.

The contract to print the papers was reportedly awarded to a Nigerian firm named Cemoz International Limited which then subsequently contracted the job out to printers in London.

Ballot papers for several South-West states were found at the location but a staff of Panther Printing Services reportedly told Sahara Reporters that the company was only contracted to print papers for Jigawa State.

Nigeria’s Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has remained silent on the matter despite the curious find.

INEC, on February 7, postponed the elections for six weeks citing security concerns.
