A Federal High Court in Abuja, has ordered the arrest of the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Mahmood Yakubu.

The order for Yakubu’s arrest was based on alleged failure to appear in court.

The trial judge, Justice Stephen Pam, issued the arrest warrant after the INEC Chairman was absent in court for the third time.

It would be recalled that Justice Pam had on July 5 ordered that Yakubu should appear before him to show cause why he should not be sent to prison for contempt of court.
