Anambra based human right lawyer, Barr Christopher Enemuo has accused chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Prof Mahmood Yakubu of contravening relevant sections of the electoral act.
The activist said INEC boss should rather be answering questions about fraudulent practices during the presidential election than talking about conducting the governorship and House of Assembly elections,
Addressing newsmen in Awka, Enemuo said: “It is an offence for the INEC chairman not to upload election result through the BVAS, and that on its own is an offence already committed by the chairman.
“I do not understand why the INEC chairman is still moving around as if nothing happened; he is yet to be arrested and investigated by the law enforcement agencies in Nigeria.
“There are stipulated circumstances by our laws as to when persons could be arrested; when they are planning to commit a crime, while committing a crime and when a crime is already established.
“On our national television, right before our law enforcement agencies and Nigerians, the INEC chairman committed an electoral offence.”
The lawyer called on both Labour Party (LP) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) legal team to officially petition law enforcement agencies and other essential bodies to institute criminal and civil suit against INEC chairman.
Enemuo had last week called for the arrest of the INEC chairman by the Department of State Service, DSS.
