A federal high court in Abuja has been asked to compel the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) to supply the asset declaration form belonging to Mahmood Yakubu, chairman, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Emmanuel Agonsi, the plaintiff, wrote a letter to the CCB, seeking the INEC chairman’s asset declaration form also as that of his unmarried adult children.

In an ex parte motion with suit number FHC/ABJ/CS/33/2021, the plaintiff through his counsel E. C. Muokwudo, prayed the court to direct the CCB to supply the certified true copies (CTC) of the asset declaration forms.

Agonsi wants details of Yakubu’s assets between 2007 and 2012 when he held office as secretary , Tertiary Education trust fund (TETFUND) and as INEC chairman between 2015 and 2020.

He also asked the court to order the CCB to furnish him with information about all the properties, assets and liabilities of Yakubu’s unmarried adult children submitted to the CCB for the amount covered.

The plaintiff further prayed the court to declare that the refusal of CCB to reply or suits his request is unlawful.
