Charly Boy’s group storms INEC, demands prosecution of Mantu over ‘poll-rigging confession’
Maverick showbiz star and musician, Charles Oputa, aka Charlyboy, yesterday, led the Ourmumudondo group on a peaceful protest to the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Abuja over Senator Ibrahim Mantu’s alleged poll-rigging confession.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the protest, which took place in Abuja, was to urge the electoral body to prosecute Mantu on electoral malpractices over his recent ‘poll-rigging confession.’
The group said the protest was to remind the INEC that Mantu’s incidence is an opportunity for it to demonstrate its resolve to prosecute electoral offenders and sanitise the electoral system.
Its National Secretary, Raphael Adebayo, alleged that Mantu, a former deputy president of the senate recently revealled how he helped his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to win elections in the past.
“The Ourmumudondo Movement deems it imperative to ask the INEC to immediately initiate the prosecution of Mantu.
“Ibrahim Mantu, who was a senator on the platform of the PDP, recently confessed how he rigged elections during an interview on a live programme aired on a private television channel.
