The candidate of the People’s Democratic Party ( PDP) in the recently concluded Abia North senatorial zone, Senator Mao Ohuabunwa risks been declared wanted on Thursday over failure to report to police invitation last week.
Ohuabunwa lost his senatorial seat to the former Governor of Abia State and candidate of the All Progressives Candidates, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu
A reliable source in the force headquarters said the report of the investigation conducted against Ohuabunwa on his alleged role during the concluded general election shows Ohuabunwa has questions to answer to the police.
The source noted that eight witnesses including an inspector and two policemen testified against Ohuabunwa on his role on intimidation of INEC staff, snatching of ballot boxes and result sheets.
In addition, another three youths (names withheld) who were arrested for initiating violence on voters which according to hospital reports led to the death of two persons while many with injuries are yet to recover made useful statements implicating Ohabunwa.
The source also stated that the Inspector General of Police(IGP) have been briefed on Ohuabunwa’s reckless statements about the Abia State commissioner of Police.
Ohuabunwa was said to have bragged that his disregard for the commissioner’s invitation and the Criminal Investigation Department was as a result of his alleged closeness to the Inspector General of Police.
It will also be recalled that during the collation of results for Abia North senate, Ohuabunwa reportedly stormed Arochukwu Local government collation Centre and forced himself into the collation room. Every attempt to resist him failed as thugs with him overpowered the security details before disappearing with one of the result sheets.
Meanwhile, the INEC National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Mr. Festus Okoye has reacted to reports that Abia North senatorial election was declared inconclusive.
He asked the general public to disregard such reports as election was concluded and winner duly declared.
