A panel has been set up by the Inspector-General of Police Ibrahim Idris to investigate and analyse an alleged audio comment by Rivers state Governor Nyesom Wike on the legislative re-run elections in Rivers.
Spokesman of the Nigeria Police Force, DCP Don Awunah, revealed that the panel would also investigate 70 incidents mentioned by the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmud Yakub, during the elections.
He enjoined the Rivers government and INEC to provide the panel facts in order to achieve a comprehensive and conclusive investigation.
“The election observers, civil society groups, Human Rights watchers and other stakeholders are equally called upon to assist the team with valuable information they may have,” he added.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the panel headed by a Deputy Commissioner of Police, has 30 days to submit its report which will be made public.
