Adamawa election: INEC fumes as enraged villagers attack and strip the Commissioner naked


INEC has urged on security forces to arrest and prosecute people who brutalized one of its national commissioners deployed to Adamawa State for Saturday’s supplementary governorship election.

Recall that the Resident Electoral Commissioner, Yunusu Ari, controversially pronounced Aishatu Dahiru, commonly known as Binani, the victor of the Adamawa gubernatorial election halfway through collation.

INEC headquarters issued a statement shortly after the pronouncement declaring the action null and void.

Residents allegedly swooped on an INEC commissioner who was misidentified as the REC.

The attack was condemned by INEC National Commissioner Festus Okoye, who spoke to press in Birnin Kebbi on Sunday.

He stated that one of its employees, a former Vice Chancellor of Usman Dan Fodio University, had been savagely abused.

Okoye emphasized that the action would not stand, and he urged security agencies to find the offenders.

Okoye further stated that Yunusa Ari, the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Adamawa, has arrived in Abuja after being called over the invalid declaration of Aisha ‘Binani’ Dahiru of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the governorship election winner.
