Suspended Adamawa REC Flees To Niger Republic

The suspended Adamawa State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Hudu Yunusa Ari, has evaded arraignment for his trial for the second time.

Yunusa-Ari has gone into hiding, the Investigating Police Officer (IPO), CSP Moses Jolugbo, told the Adamawa State High Court of Justice.

The trial judge, Justice Benjamin Manji had tasked the Nigerian police to produce the suspended REC on or before the adjourned date of November 23.

When the matter came up in court, counsel to INEC, Rotimi Jacobs prayed the court to issue a warrant of arrest against the fleeing suspended REC.

However, just before the judge would respond to the request, a lawyer, Usman M. SAN, announced appearance for Yunusa Ari, saying “I was instructed by his son. As of now our client (Yunusa Ari) is not in the country, he is in Niger republic,” he said.

Justice Manji, then tasked the counsel to produce Yunusa Ari within two weeks and adjourned the case accordingly.

embattled Adamawa state senator Elisha Abbo, who was recently sacked by the Court of Appeal signed the police bail bond for the disgraced Resident Electoral Commissioner.
