A joint panel, comprising officers of the Nigeria Police Force, Department of State Services, and officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission, has invited the suspended Adamawa Resident Electoral Commissioner, Hudu Yunusa-Ari, over his conduct during the April 15 supplementary elections.
The investigation panel set up by the Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba, asked Yunusa-Ari to show up at the Force Headquarters, Louis Edet House, Abuja.
The panel is headed by an Assistant Inspector General of Police and Head of Interpol, Nigeria, Garba Umar, who was appointed as Head of the Election Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation Team, in the build-up to the 2023 general elections.

The spokesperson for the Force Criminal Investigation Department, Funmi Eguaoje, confirmed the development to our correspondent on Monday.
Yunusa-Ari had stirred controversy after declaring the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Aisha Dahiru, popularly known as Binani, as the winner of the Adamawa State governorship election, when collation of results was yet to be completed.
This was followed by an announcement by INEC, proclaiming the declaration by Yunusa-Ari as null and void, while the REC was summoned to INEC headquarters in Abuja, but failed to honour the summon.
