9jahitplay.com gathered that INEC set up the committee following public outcry that greeted videos and photos of underage voting believed to be during the Kano election.
“From all what we have seen and discussed with you media men, none of you has seen any underage voter in the line or voting,” Nahuce said on Friday, March 3.
The team has so far reportedly met with Kano State Independent Electoral Commission (KANSIEC) chairman, the media and other relevant bodies.
