When queried on how they got the NIA registration materials, one of the culprits, Daniel Dagah said one Malik who he described as the NIA Monitoring Officer for the Ashiedu Keteke Sub-metro released the documents to them.

Sources from the NIA revealed that both the registration and Oath forms are not even supposed to be filled by the applicants at the registration centres and not to be taken out of the centres.
