Election offences: NHRC to unveil indicted people Thursday

The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) said it will release on Thursday names of electoral officials, politicians, security personnel and others indicted for electoral offences during the 2007 and 2011 general elections.

The commission said on Wednesday it will launch a report titled: “End electoral impunity,” containing among others, names of people indicted for election offences by tribunals.

The NHRC Executive Secretary, Prof. Bem Angwe, had disclosed last month in Abuja that the committee will release reports of its investigations “very soon.”

Angwe said the NHRC will also release the outcome of its investigation into last year clash between the army and members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria.
