Hudu Ari, the suspended chairman of the Adamawa Resident Electoral Commission (REC), is reportedly nowhere to be found, according to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Festus Okoye said on Friday that the Commission also recommended the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) to designate the suspended REC as wanted after he announced Senator Aisha Dahiru, nicknamed Binnani, of the All Progressives Congress, as the winner of the April Adamawa supplementary election.
“We don’t know where he is because, after this particular incident, the Commission wrote him and also called him on the phone. He never returned any of the calls, he never answered any of the calls.
“We asked him to report to the Commission on Sunday we didn’t see him, we asked him to report on Monday we didn’t see him.
“So up till this moment, he has not reported and we don’t know his whereabouts.
“(It) is the responsibility of the Nigerian police (to declare Ari wanted). If they feel that his presence is absolutely needed during the investigation and he is nowhere to be found, it is their prerogative and discretion to declare him wanted,” he said.
