INEC clears air on alleged attack on Mahmood Yakubu’s residence

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has reacted to the report that a property that was attacked in Bauchi State belongs to its chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu.

In a statement issued on Saturday, Mr Yakubu’s Chief Press Secretary, Rotimi Oyekanmi, said the purported property does not belong to his principal and that the rumours are part of a desperate smear campaign.

The statement read: “The property being purportedly attacked by some youths in a video clip circulating on the social media does not belong to the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu.

“The INEC Chairman does not own the property in question in either Bauchi or anywhere else around the world.


“This narrative is indeed the latest in the series of desperate smear campaign efforts by mischief makers. The public should disregard it.”
