Court orders arrest of INEC Chairman

 

Justice Stephen Pam of the Federal High Court in Abuja orders the arrest of INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmoud Yakubu, for flouting court orders.

Justice Stephen Pam issued the warrant of arrest on Thursday 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.
The judge made the order for Mahmood to appear before him while ruling on a preliminary objection by INEC and its Chairman in a contempt proceeding filed by Ejike Oguebego and Chuks Okoye, Chairman and Legal Adviser of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra State, respectively.
