NBA Accuses Nigeria Police Force Of Compromising Osun Rerun Election by dapelua(m): 6:49am On Oct 05, 2018
- The Nigerian Bar Association says the Osun rerun poll fell far short of a free and fair election.


- The association details instances of how the police allegedly in collusion with thugs selectively prevented voters from accessing polling units

- The Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) calls for government institutions who allegedly participated in reported fraud during the Osun rerun election to be investigated

The Nigerian Bar Association has accused the Nigeria police force of compromising the Osun state governorship rerun election which held on September 27.

The legal association in a report by its ad hoc committee on the rerun, said the actions and inaction of the police during the poll showed that it had been compromised.

The report said the rerun fell far short of a free and fair election compared to what transpired in the election of September 22.

The NBA in the report published on Sunday, September 30, on its website accused the police of failing to question the activities of some political thugs who invaded the Orolu area where part of the supplementary poll took place.

The association in the report also cited other instances of how the police allegedly in collusion with thugs, selectively prevented voters from accessing some polling units.

Detailing what happened in Orolu, the NBA said: “The team deployed to observe the rerun election at Orolu, Ward 8, polling units 1 and 4 and ward 9, polling unit 3, set out for the assignment at about 6:30am. The team’s enthusiasm was dampened by their harassment and subsequent arrest by mobile policemen en-route Orolu.

"They were taken before Ali Janga, Commissioner of Police, at a Police Post. CP Ali Janga is in charge of Kogi State Police Command. Incidentally, the Secretary of the NBA ad-hoc EWG, Liman Salihu Esq. the immediate past chairman of the NBA Lokoja Branch, Kogi State, recognized the CP and showed his Identification Card to him but surprisingly the CP ordered that the team be taken to the INEC Office.

At the INEC office, it took one of our own, Festus Okoye Esq. who is currently the INEC Commissioner representing South-East Geopolitical Zone, to secure their release; he also facilitated the team’s movement to Orolu.

"The road to Orolu is barely motorable and appears to have been recently graded for the purpose of the election. The location of the polling unit at Ifon Orolu Kajola was in a farm house inside a thick bush and there was only one unoccupied residence with a distance of about 80meters from the said polling unit. The materials for the election arrived on time at the respective units and voting proper commenced at the stipulated time of 8:00am.

"There was heavy security presence with about thirty (30) armed Police officials at Orolu. At about 10:00am, while figuring out how to get to Idiya Polling Unit in Orolu, four (4) Toyota Hiace buses packed with about fifty (50) fierce looking men, drove in and the men alighted and walked towards the polling unit without any PVC in their hands. In spite of the heavy security presence of the Nigerian Police, these men were not stopped nor asked if they were going to vote neither were they asked for their PVCs. This however aroused our suspicion.

"A member of the NBA Ad-hoc EWG who attempted a recording of the happenings (a few seconds was recorded though) was almost attacked by about six (6) of these men. Surprisingly the Police officials stood aloof and did nothing to stop the invasion by this group of men. The reason given by the security men (Police officials) for their inaction was that they could not act without formal complaints from us.

"Another observation at Orolu was that most of the voters had identification bands on their left arms and ring bands on their thumbs. Those with the said identification bands were allowed access into Orolu while those without the bands were not allowed access and so could not vote. Although these voters without the bands displayed their PVCs to the Police men on ground as evidence that they had been registered to vote at that particular polling unit, the Police personnel adamantly turned them back and as such they could not exercise their right to vote. Voters that were allowed to vote without the bands were those who had arrived earlier before the commencement of voting.

Similarly, one of Nigeria’s most respected election monitoring groups in the country, the Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD), has said the Thursday, September 27, re-run election in Osun state was neither free, fair nor credible.

The group in a statement shortly after the poll also called for government institutions who participated in alleged fraud during the election to be investigated, Premium Times reports.

The CDD insisted that the poll fell short of the global best practices in democratic elections which Nigerians desire.

Someone has gotten Ghana must go

Those who were sent back from Orolu local governments were not beaten or assaulted , they were sent back because their card did not belong to that local government and they tried to vote , at least 3 different videos of police telling some people to get back, the man was later identified as a native of Ede town and the video is still trending on Facebook

A whole saraki spent ~3weeks in Ede Osun state and still could not win for PDP Obviously they will claim it was rigged

Same man who shutdown NASS so he won't be impeached lol hahahahah

Anyways , NBA , EFCC will check your accounts and if they find deposits, Aye yin ti baje niyen

UPDATE: Apparently , this comment did not sit well with the most idiotic jewus on the planet

No saraki was not mentioned in this article, but Tinubu was accused of bringing cash loaded helicopters to Osun state, are you telling me Saraki just came to smile at the camera ?

back to a rejoinder on my comment , Those who were sent back from Orolu local governments were not beaten or assaulted , they were sent back because their card did not belong to that local government and they tried to vote

secondly , those who claimed they were sent back literally traveled tens of kilometers in Buses ( according to a video on facebook, the lady interviewed said they went to Orolu in 20 Buses and 20 Okada) If you were in that polling unit, would you have allowed them to vote ?

Considering the fact that 3 buses arrived earlier claiming to be observers but rather they were PDP agents with Fake ID / Fake pressmen ID cards which led to police scrutinizing every Media agents and observers before letting them in


Tens of news casters were reporting live at the event, others were sent back , those who were permitted were given free access to every part of polling centre


But as always JEWUS bastards of LiePod land will come with heavy hammer on anyone who speaks against their perceived expectation

I was doing analysis here and there for those Pigs of land of BiyaFraud , they kept insulting me , abusing me and they've done it again today

I do not always write my comments in full until some idiots insult me , i summarize everything, that's why and how i know , our brain powers do not work the same, some fools are just too dumb to understand anything i write ,

You are so emotionally attached and biased that you cannot reason beyond petty sentiments.

I hope it won't take long to get justice.

At first, I was happy Adeleke would win. But when I called my aunt, a civil servant and beneficiary of the 'modulated salary', to ask her who she voted for. She said Oyetola, my jaw dropped. And this is someone that will be cursing Aregbe all d time.
I'm confused ehn.

Same reason Jega accepted Rivers state governorship election.
You see there is no sense in conducting another rerun as the factors that led to the rerun has not been removed. The election was cancelled because of violence occasioned by Political parties and their thugs. They are the beneficiaries, they are the culprits, and should bear the burnt. I bet you, let that rerun be conducted 10 times, you will still have violence. If our political parties and their candidates cannot do without violence, they should not be adding additional financial burden to the nation.
So if they cannot give peace a chance, they should go to court and fight themselves out instead of creating unnecessary panic and financial burden to Nigerians.

be sincere to urself for atleast once.

what on earth made u think dat the osunites would vote for the annointed candidate of aregbesola who couldn't pay salaries?

do u think dat the osunites are fools? or dat they enjoy suffering?

for example, fayose's inability to pay his workers led to loss of eleka, his annointed candidate, that scenerio was about to repeat itself in osun b4 INEC in collaboration with APC rigged out PDP
