JUST IN: High Court Sets Date to Arraign Suspended Adamawa REC

The Adamawa State High Court of Justice has scheduled the arraignment of the suspended Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Barrister Hudu Ari Yunusa, for November 6, 2023.

SAHEL reports that Yunusa was suspended from office in February 2023 by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for illegally announcing the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Aisha Dahiru, popularly known as Binani, as the winner of the 2023 governorship election Adamawa State.

Other allegations against him include breaching his oath of neutrality, disorderly conduct during elections, inciting disturbance, and personating a public servant.

The arraignment was initially set for July 27th, 2023, but was delayed due to Yunusa’s failure to appear in court.

This publication understands that Justice Benjamin Manji Lawan was forced to adjourn the case for the third time.

The court then set October 23rd, 2023, for the arraignment, but it could not take place as planned due to the court’s inability to sit.

The new arraignment date was set by Justice Lawan when the case came up for mention on October 23rd.
