INEC Should Devise Mechanism To Deal With Electoral Violence – Falana

LAGOS – Femi Falana, Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), has charged Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to put effective mechanism in place to deal with perpetrators of electoral violence.

The lawyer in a chat with DAILY INDEPENDENT on Monday noted that electoral offences had always been a regular occurrence during elections but that the leadership of INEC must evolve an effective mechanism to ensure that it is curbed.

He stressed that though it might not be eradicated; if stringent measures are to be devised it would serve as deterrent to those who have penchant for indulging in the electoral violence, and reduce it tremendously.
