It has been reported that Mahmood Yakubu, the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has obtained a court judgement barring the security agency from arresting him.

The DSS Has No Case Against INEC Chairman

The Department of State Services (DSS) has reacted to this claim. Earlier today, it was reported that a federal high court that was sitting in Abuja had dismissed charges that Yakubu had made a fake asset statement.

The judge also prevented the DSS, the police, and the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) from investigating him over his asset declaration.

Peter Afunanya, a spokesperson for the DSS, provided a response to the news on Friday, January 6, stating that the agency has never filed a lawsuit against the INEC chairman and does not have a case against him.
