Vanguard reports that the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC has written to the Inspector General of Police, IGP Usman Baba Alkali.
The INEC wrote to the IGP to investigate its Resident Electoral Commissioner REC in Adamawa state, Barr. Hudu Yunusa-Ari for possible prosecution.
INEC also resolved to write the Secretary to the Government of the Federation SGF, Mr Boss Mustapha with a view to acquainting President Muhammadu Buhari with the “unwholesome” activities of the REC and possibly reviewing his appointment.
The decisions were a fallout of the Commission’s meeting on Tuesday in Abuja.

“Write to the Inspector-General of Police for the immediate investigation and possible prosecution of the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) for Adamawa State, Barr. Hudu Yunusa Ari.
