The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Saturday officially stated their non-involvement in the purported investigation of criminal forfeiture against the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu.

The statement which was allegedly signed by INEC’s National Commissioner and Chairman of the Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, says the electoral body was liaising with the Northern Illinois District Court in the United States of America to establish more facts about the case before taking a decision.

The alleged statement titled, ‘Certified True Copy of Order of Criminal Forfeiture against APC Presidential Candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the United States’ claimed that the commission was liaising with the Northern Illinois District Court to establish more facts about the case before taking a decision.

But in his reaction on Saturday, Okoye explained that the press release did not come from INEC, noting that it was the handiwork of mischief makers. He, therefore, advised the public to ignore it.
