Kogi Guber: INEC Admits Natasha Was Attacked, Says It Sent Lawyer To Rescue Her


The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), on Tuesday, said the commission sent a lawyer to rescue the governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Barr Natasha Akpoti when it heard she was attacked by thugs at the venue of the Peace Pact meeting organized by INEC in Lokoja.

The electoral umpire made this known while responding to Natasha Akpoti’s post on twitter, saying, when they heard she was attacked, they sent their legal officer to search for her.

The electoral umpire added that, “first let me say that it was unfortunate that you were attacked. The meeting was already well on course when you arrived. When we heard you were outside, we sent our Legal Officer to search for you. He came back after searching the entire premises.


“You have every right to attend the Stakeholders’ Meeting and the attack on you by unknown persons is reprehensible. However, we were all inside the tightly packed hall and we tried all we could to save the situation when we got the information”, the commission said.

Natasha Akpoti lamented in her post that, “I was invited as a stakeholder. IGP, prof Mahmood Yakubu etc all sat in the hall while 30 of Yahaya Bello’s thugs in APC shirts sexually & physically attacked me before 500+ policemen who did nothing to stop them.”
