Court Orders Arrest Of INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has ordered the arrest of the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Mahmood Yakubu, for failing to appear in court.

Justice Stephen Pam issued the warrant of arrest today after Mahmood’s absent in court for the third time.

The judge asked the police to effect the arrest immediately.

Justice Pam had on July 5 ordered Yakubu to appear before him to show cause why he should not be sent to prison for contempt of court.
