The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has come under fire from Nollywood actress Kate Henshaw for disenfranchising her and 20 other voters in her voting place.

The actress bemoaned not being able to vote in a video posted to her Twitter account because the BVAS claims she is not registered.

She is unable to vote, nevertheless.

She requested a prompt resolution to the issue from the INEC official in Lagos.

The actress also urged international media outlets like the BBC and CNN to pay attention to what is occurring in Nigeria while rebuking INEC for meddling with her future.
