Bauchi: INEC Chairman Not Owner Of Destroyed Property- Official

The Independent National Electoral Commission has said that its chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu does not own the property destroyed in Bauchi State.

This was made known in a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the INEC chairman, Rotimi Oyekanmi, on Saturday.

Oyekanmi was reacting to a viral video where a property claimed to be owned by Mahmood was destroyed.

He said that the rumours were 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.”
