Earlier than the results of the second round of voting in the governor’s race in Adamawa State had been totally tallied, Ari introduced the results on Sunday.

“We don’t know where he is because the Commission wrote and called him following this particular occurrence. He never answered any of the calls or gave any of them a return call.

Okoye responded that it is the Nigerian Police’s obligation when asked about the potential of Ari being listed as sought for failing to report to the Commission or return its calls.

“Well, that falls under the purview of the Nigerian police. They have the right and discretion to issue a wanted notice for him if they believe his presence is crucial to the inquiry and he is nowhere to be found, the man said.

President Muhammadu Buhari was informed of the situation by INEC after the REC was suspended. As the Inspector General of Police looks investigating the REC’s actions during the Supplementary election in Adamawa State, the President accepted Ari’s suspension on Thursday.
