According to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the whereabouts of suspended Adamawa Resident Electoral Commissioner Hudu Ari, is unknown.
INEC National Commissioner, Festus Okoye disclosed this on Friday while speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily.
“We don’t know where he is because, after this particular incident, the commission wrote to him and also called him on the phone. He never returned any of the calls; he never answered any of the calls.
“We asked him to report to the commission on Sunday, but we didn’t see him. We asked him to report on Monday, but we didn’t see him. So, up till this moment, he has not reported and we don’t know his whereabouts,” Okoye said.
He added: “Well, that is the responsibility of the Nigeria Police. If they feel that his presence is absolutely needed during the investigation and he is nowhere to be found, it is their prerogative and discretion to declare him wanted.”
“We wrote to the Inspector General of Police and Secretary to the Government of the Federation. We have received a response from the Inspector General of Police and they have already commenced an investigation.
“My understanding is that the moment the Inspector General of Police concludes the investigation regarding the REC and every other individual involved and a prima facie case is established against the REC, the file will be made available to the commission and the commission will begin prosecution of the REC.”
