He said, “The first challenge we had was that when the thing started circulating, it was difficult to locate where it happened.
“There were speculations that it happened in Imo State while some said it happened in Rivers State.
“When we reported the matter to security agencies, the location was zeroed down to Rivers State and we have appealed to those who found the PVCs to tell us the exact location so that we can go to the root of the matter.
“We have also appealed to them to return those PVCs to the commission so that we can commence full investigations to find out whether those PVCs were actually found in someone’s house.
“We have commenced full investigation into the circumstances that led to those PVCs being there and I’m sure that when we get additional information, and make a breakthrough, the commission will issue a statement on that”.
