A former lawmaker who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial, Shehu Sani, has cautioned against the attacks on establishments belonging to the Nigerian Police Force and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the South-Eastern region.

WUZUPNIGERIA had reported that the spate of attacks, amidst insecurity in the country, led to an emergency INEC meeting chaired by INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, with Resident Electoral Commissioners at the Commission’s headquarters in Abuja some days ago.
