The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Saturday debunked the report that a property that was attacked in Bauchi State belongs to its chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu.
INEC cleared the air in a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the INEC Chairman, Rotimi Oyekanmi.
Oyekanmi noted that the INEC Chairman does not own any property and the rumours are 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.”
