Bole based Nkilgi Fm spoke to Mr Nuhu Banasco Seidu and he confirmed the incident. He said people were aware of the phones at his residence which is a little bit isoloated from town and that he and his campign were all busy at the grounds when the incident happened. He said he brought about 50 phones to the grounds for the delegates to see them and later sent his campaign team members to his residence to bring the rest to be shared to electoral Area coordinators for distribution to the Poliing station executives but they came they came back back to tell him his house was broken into and all the phones stolen.
Mr Banasco said he is working round the clock to rearranged phones that will be distributed to the delegates soon.
