He said, “It is envisaged that owners of these cards are not only from Sabon Birni local government but could be from other parts of the state because we could not trace the rightful owners of the PVCs.”
The commissioner also urged members of the public to report to the command headquarters for missing or misplaced PVCs.
However, he added that after one month, the police would return all the remaining cards (that are not claimed) to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
