Police Confirms Active Investigation On Suspended Adamawa REC




The Nigeria Police has confirmed it has recieved a request from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to investigate the action of suspended Adamawa Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) Hudu Yunusa Ari in the state’s governorship election.

The confirmation was made by the Police Force spokesman Olumuyiwa Adejobi in a statement.

Adejobi confirmed that the police has received INEC’s letter demanding Yunusa-Ari’s probe.

Recall that Yunusa-Ari had declared the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate Aisha ‘Binani’ Dahiru as the winner of the supplementary poll even while the collation of results was ongoing, a decision INEC nullified.

Speaking on the request by INEC, Adejobi noted that the “Nigeria Police Force is in receipt of a letter dated 18th April 2023 from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) detailing the alleged impropriety of the actions of one Barr. Hudu Yunusa-Ari, the Adamawa State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), during the recently concluded supplementary elections and called on the Police to investigate and possibly prosecute the REC for his actions.

“The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, CFR, has directed an investigative team to work in collaboration with the INEC to expedite action on the contents of the letter.

“The Inspector-General of Police while expressing the commitment of the NPF to upholding democratic values, assures Nigerians and the international community, that the Police will leave no stone unturned in unraveling the remote causes of the unwholesome conduct of the REC as well as ensure that all persons fingered in the course of investigations are brought to book.”
