Following the news on social media about the alleged murder of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Chairman, Prof Mahmood Yakubu, in Anambra, the Police has reacted to the news, describing it as false.
There are claims that Yakubu was assassinated on Tuesday by unknown gunmen, a gang that has been terrorizing the South-East region.
Meanwhile, a statement issued to newsmen on Tuesday night by DSP Nkeiruka Nwode, discredited the circulating information.
The officer said Yakubu held a stakeholders meeting in Awka and stated the preparedness of the commission to hold peaceful election in the state.
