Reports has it that state coordinator of the service, Emmanuel Attah, argued that if the presiding officer was a corps member, he would have been easily identified and arrested. Attah was quoted as saying that not all ad-hoc staff hired by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the election were corps members.

He noted that there were other categories of ad-hoc staff deployed for the exercise. “The presiding officer who walked away with the result is not our member, because our members are always in uniform and it is easy to identify them. “You know that INEC had other ad-hoc staff which they got to complement the ones they got from NYSC. “It it was a corps member, we would have been able to identify him and deal with the situation,” Attah said.

The election in the ward was cancelled because the presiding officer was said to have absconded with the result.
