The chairman Independent National Electoral Commission, Mahmood Yakubu has denied ownership of a property seen being destroyed by youths in a viral video on social media.
This was contained in a statement released by the chief press secretary to INEC , Rotimi Oyekanmi on Saturday.
A video of youths vandalizing a house in Bauchi went viral with people stating that the building belonged to the INEC boss and that the building was damaged to register their displeasure of the outcome of the elections.
Oyekanmi however said the property in question doesn’t belong to the
INEC boss, Mahmood Yakubu and urged the public to disregard the rumour.
“The INEC Chaiman does not own the property in question in either Bauchi or anywhere else around the world”
Oyekanmi attributed the rumour to efforts by mischief makers.
“This narrative is indeed the latest in the series of desperate smear campaign efforts by mischief makers. The public should disregard it”
