Police deny reports that the INEC Chairman was attacked at his home in Bauchi.

Rumors that the Bauchi home of Prof. Mahmoud Yakubu, Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), was attacked by hoodlums have been refuted by the Police Command, Bauchi State.

This is stated in a statement made accessible to journalists on Saturday in Bauchi and signed by SP Ahmed Wakil, the command’s spokesman.

He noted that the attention of the Command had been drawn to a viral video, making the rounds in the media, that the Bauchi residence of the INEC Chairman was attacked.

“We categorically wish to state that the video and its content are entirely fake, as no such event occurred within or around Bauchi metropolis earlier today,” he said.

Wakil said the Bauchi Commissioner of Police, CP Aminu Alhassan, is cognisant of the negative impacts of disinformation to public peace and security.

“However, we have already ordered a discreet investigation to unravel the origin of the video, with a view to ensuring that the fabricator of the viral clip faces the full wrath of the law.

“The Command reiterates that there was no attack of any nature on the residence of the INEC Chairman in Bauchi,” he said.

The Spokesman, however, urged the general public not to panic while also disregarding the fake video and its malicious content. (NAN)
