US bomber’s face, Abdulmutallab appears in Edo Voter’s register- Oshiomole alleges


Governor Adams Oshiomole of Edo state has alleged that the image of Umar Farouk
Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian who was jailed in the United States in 2012 for terrorism offences is on a fake voters’ register that may be used during the state governorship election holding today.

Oshiomhole made the allegation when the
US Consul General in Lagos, F John Bray paid him a visit in the state government
house yesterday ahead of today’s governorship election in the state.

According to Oshiomole, he was shocked to see the portrait of the “underwear bomber” in the fake register, but with a Benin name.

Abdulmutallab was convicted of attempting
on December 25, 2009 to detonate explosives hidden in his underwear on board an airline from Amsterdam to Detroit, Michigan.

“Right now, we have evidence of two versions of voter’s register, the one they
have officially distributed and the one that
some elements within the ICT in INEC have
also produced in Abuja.If INEC has two versions of voters register and they display
one officially, then we have a problem.

And the reason why this is extremely
worrisome for me is that in my election in
2012, INEC tried to use this method to
disenfranchise many of our supporters.
For example, I was shocked to find the portrait of Mr Abdulmutalab, and that will
interest your Excellency, the young man who has been jailed in the US for a terrorist act. His portrait is in the fake voter’s register with a Benin name under it.

I am sure if you look at the face, if we don’t know the face, you the US officials know the face. And you find the name under it, that it is a Benin name in Ovia South West”he said
