LAGOS, Nigeria, Dec. 10 (UPI) -- Thieves stole new voter registration equipment in a robbery at Nigeria's main international airport, an election official said.

The official said the equipment was among items stolen Monday at Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos, the Nigerian Tribune reported Friday, when details about the theft and how it likely occurred emerged.

The machines apparently were left in the open near a wall of the airport and hadn't been cleared for removal, the newspaper said. A strike by some airport workers was partly to blame for the stall in clearing the machines, officials said.

The equipment was to have been used to register Nigeria's estimated 70 million voters before elections next year.

The Independent National Electoral Commission has alerted government officials and initiated an investigation into the theft, the Tribune said.
