Vote Buying: Rivers’ Police Arrest Atiku’s Campaigner With Over $500, 000
Amidst the deliberate efforts to curtail the practice of money politics in the general elections in Nigeria, the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, among several other reasons introduced New Naira Policy ahead of the 2023 general polls.
Nonetheless, a member of the House of Representatives and campaigner of Atiku Abubakar, Dr. Chinyere Igwe, has allegedly been arrested with $500,000 in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
According to the NATIONS, Igwe, who represents Port Harcourt Federal Constituency 2, was nabbed on Friday during a stop-and-search operation along Aba Road.
Spokesperson of Rivers Police Command, Grace Iringe-Koko, who confirmed the arrest, said: “A statement on it will be released soon”.
