The authority of the Nigerian Immigration Service said it has arrested some foreigners posing as Nigerians at registration units and recovered Permanent Voter Cards from them.
The Controller of Immigration, Lagos State Command, Justina Ahmedu, said such suspects would be repatriated immediately.
According to Ahmedu, foreigners of the Economic Community of West African States had no business in the election even though they reside in the country.

She added that some immigration officers went undercover, moving around different registration centres where they nabbed these foreigners.
She vowed: “This raid will continue!
“Our officers will continue going to registrations centres to keep eyes on foreigners who want to collect the PVC.
“This election is strictly for Nigerians.
“If we come across them, we will be left with no other option than to arrest and repatriate them.
“Already, we have some Ghanians in our custody that will be repatriated immediately!”
