The statement read, “The Resident Electoral Commissioner for Akwa Ibom State, Barr. Mike Igini, has reported that our office in Essien Udim Local Government Area has been set ablaze.

“The incident occurred in the early hours of this morning, Sunday 2nd May 2021. Our security guard on duty escaped unhurt but the destruction to the building and properties therein was extensive. Items destroyed include 345 ballot boxes, 135 voting cubicles, megaphones, water tanks, and office furniture.

 

“The police, which has also been battling with attacks on its facilities and personnel in the area, is aware of the incident and has commenced investigation.

 

“It will be recalled that on the eve of the 2020 General Election, our newly constructed prototype LGA office in Ibesikpo Asutan was burnt down while two more offices in Mkpat Enin and Eastern Obolo LGAS were bombed.

“The recent attack on our facility after we have just concluded the inventory of electoral materials nationwide in readiness for the 2023 General Election is worrisome. If unchecked, these attacks may constitute a setback on the Commission’s preparations, including the ongoing conversion of Voting Points to Polling Units, the forthcoming Continuous Registration of Voters (CVR) exercise and the conduct of polls.

“Nevertheless, the Commission wishes to assure Nigerians that we will leave no stone unturned to recover from the incident in Akwa Ibom State as we continue to prepare for all electoral activities.

Published

on

Nollywood actor, Yomi Fabiyi has in an Instagram shared his thoughts about the current situation of Baba Ijesha and his utmost reason why he is pressing for a bail to be granted for him.

According to Yomi, one becomes a threat to public peace if there is no bit of knowledge on human rights. He stated that his display on social media is to prepare the next generation of bias and emotional people and eradicate many people who just follow the law.

Yomi who reiterated that sexual assault forms part of bailable offences asked the security agencies to respect and honour it in bid to grant Baba Ijesha bail. He asked all and sundry to put emotions aside when a crime is committed and abide by laws set out.

In a statement shared via his Instagram page reads;

Honesty is the FIRST CHAPTER in the book of WISDOM. No matter your status, education, position or religion, if you LACK HUMAN RIGHTS UNDERSTANDING, you are a THREAT TO PUBLIC PEACE and you are not civilised, humane and dignified. To display such on social media is to groom the next generation of bias and emotional people instead of those who will follow the law.

The LAW is the LAW. Sexual Assault etc are BAILABLE OFFENCES, the law enforcement MUST respect and honour this. It is one of the major pathway to a peaceful society. Leave emotions, don’t create your own laws when a crime is committed and NEVER support any idea that will deny anybody his or her rights, IT MAY BE YOUR TURN TOMORROW whether you are on trial, INNOCENT or GUILTY.
