Chairman Professor Mahmood Yakubu

* Says INCE ad hoc staff, Ms. Ibisiki Amachree, was killed by alleged stray bullet in Rivers

The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, has denied reports that the commission was planning to cancel or declared as inconclusive, the Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly elections in the FCT.

He also told newsmen at the National Collation Centre located at the International Conference Centre (ICC) Abuja, the the complete results of the elections in Ekiti State are ready and that the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) is on his way to Abuja to formally submit the results for declaration.

Yakubu equally confirmed the death of one of the commission’s female ad-hoc staff in Rivers State.

According to him, the staff, Amakiri Ibisaki, was hit by a “stray bullet”.

He said the commission condemned the killing and will provide the necessary report to security agencies for investigation.

“We have recorded the first fatality, an adhoc staff was hit by bullet. We condemn this attack and will forward a comprehensive report for security agencies to investigate,” he said.

The Chairman however did not state whether Ms Ibisaki was a corps member as the bulk of INEC’s election duties staff is made up of NYSC Corps members.

He said that the incident happened in Bonny LGA of Rivers State after sporadic shootings which led to stray bullet killing the corp member and leaving some others injured.

“We consider Amachree’s death as a great loss, not only to her immediate family, but also to all INEC family and the entire nation,” he added.

Yakubu also said that one of its officer in Imo State has been detained with the Nigeria Police for alleged altercation of elections results.

He said that the commission would not spare anyone involved in any election malpractice and would be made to face the full wrath of the law.
