officer of Nigeria’s secret police, the Department of State Services (DSS) has revealed that the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Adamawa state, Hudu Yunusa, was paid N2 billion to declare Aishatu Dahiru Binani as the winner of the governorship election in the state.
In a viral video, Isa explained that the REC collected N2 billion to declare the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate as the winner.
The DSS official denied being an accomplice in the fraud. He insisted that he led a team to arrest the electoral commissioner.
“I told you while we were in the car that the REC collected money running into billions of naira to rig the election. I don’t know the exact amount but let’s put it at N2 billion,” Isa said.
Asked what he was doing around the REC’s place, he responded, “I swear to God I didn’t collude with him in the bribery; I was detailed with my team to arrest him instead.”
