Executives of the National Democratic Congress in the district held a press conference and disclosed the matter on Friday prompting the swift action from the commission.
The deputy regional director of the EC, Benjamin Bamubio, narrating the incident said the Commission took the action after the issue was brought to their knowledge and the officers interrogated.
