Abuja - The manufacturer of the Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) that would be used for the 2015 general elections, Sani Musa, has been arrested by the Department of State Security Services (DSS), reports Daily Trust.
Musa’s company, ACT Technologies, produced and supplied the PVCs for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The company has supplied 40 million secure PVCs to INEC.

Musa was invited by the DSS on Tuesday and was subsequently detained.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had on Wednesday alleged that Musa was a card carrying member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and ardent supporter of Muhammadu Buhari.
Findings have, however, revealed that Musa is still a card carrying member of PDP under which he aspired to be governor in 2003 and later senator for Niger East in 2011.
