Appeal Court Halts Arrest Order On INEC Chairman, Yakubu


The arrest order on the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, has been halted by a Court of Appeal in Abuja, TVC News reports.


A federal high Court had last week ordered the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to arrest the INEC chairman and produce him in court on August 14 to face contempt charge for violating its order.


The Justice Stephen Pam-led Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, had ruled that the INEC boss be arrested for refusing to appear before it for the third time.


Mahmood is also wanted in court to defend a contempt proceeding filed by the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in Anambra state Ejike Oguebego and the Legal Adviser of the state’s PDP Chuks Okoye.
