Ononamadu made the disclosure during a town hall meeting with civil society organsations and the media on Friday, March 30.
He said the commission is worried that the development had affected the ongoing continuous voter registration exercise in the state as thousands of those who had taken part in the affected councils would need to be called back to be re-registered.
