Nigerian Police Recover N100 Million Allegedly Used To Bribe Rivers' INEC Officials

The investigative committee of the Nigerian police has reportedly recovered N100 Million from Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) officials arrested after the Rivers state election rerun.

According to Sahara Reporters, the investigative committee of the Nigeria police said the recovered money was given to the INEC officials as bribe by River state governor, Nyesom Wike.

Recall that the Nigerian police Special Investigation Panel arrested 26 INEC officials who served in the December 2016 Rivers state National/State Legislative re-run elections.

Meanwhile, a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Monday, January 30, refused an application by the Rivers state governor Nyesom Wike to stop the probe of election violence in the state.

The governor had earlier prayed the court to grant an ex-parte motion for an interim injunction on a proposed probe by the Nigerian police.
