Three employees of the Electoral Commission of Ghana (EC) and a student were remanded by an Accra High Court for stealing laptops and Biometric Verification Devices (BVDs). The remand of the four individuals came after a hearing on Wednesday, April 17, 2024. It is worth noting that on Tuesday, March 19, the Minority Leader, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, stated that the EC had confirmed that the seven missing BVDs could not be identified.

The Minority Leader has since called on the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service and other security agencies to “immediately issue a statement giving us the details of their investigations so far,” adding, “I am concerned and worried because that devices in the hands of an unknown person can compromise the future elections”.

But addressing the press in Accra on Wednesday, March 20, a Deputy Commissioner at the EC, Dr. Bossman Asare, said, “These allegations are not true. No BVD has been stolen. To set the records straight, the Commission recently undertook routine servicing of its Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) Kits.

“We discovered the theft of five laptops from the Biometric Voter Registration kits during maintenance, not seven BVDs as previously stated. It’s important to clarify that Biometric Voter Registration Kits, which include a laptop, camera, scanner, and printer, are completely independent of the Commission’s Registration Data Systems. Therefore, they are incapable of manipulating election outcomes as some have suggested,” clarified Dr. Asare.
