UPDATED: INEC Resident Commissioner, wife, children killed in “strange” fire

INEC voter's Reg

The Resident Commissioner for the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in Kano, Mikaila Abdulahi, is dead.

Mr. Mikaila, who oversaw last Saturday’s presidential and national assembly elections in the state, died in a fire incident described as ‘strange’ by neighbours.

Mr. Mikaila’s wife, Zulaiha; and two daughters, Aisha and Asmau; were also killed in the incident, neighbours told PREMIUM TIMES.

The spokesperson of the Kano State Police Command, Magaji Majiya, confirmed the incident.

Mr. Majiya, an Assistant Superintendent of Police, said the INEC commissioner and his family died as they tried to escape through the window of their apartment.

He said the fire was suspected to have been caused by a spark in the family’s generator at about 4 a.m. on Friday.

He said the fire later spread to other parts of the house and that the INEC Commissioner and his family tried to escape through the window of one of the toilets in the building but were blocked by a burglary barrier.

Mr. Majiya said the State Police Commissioner, Ibrahim Idris, and the Deputy Police Commissioner in-charge of Criminal Investigation Department, arrived the scene almost on time.

They later rushed the INEC commissioner and his family to Murtala Muhammad Hospital, where they were confirmed dead, the police spokesperson said.

While the police said they were waiting for the result of an autopsy on the remains of Mr. Abdullahi and his family, the spokesperson for the Kano State office of INEC, Garba Muhammed, said the bodies of the victims were already being conveyed to his native Dutse, the Jigawa State capital, for burial, in line with Islamic tradition.

Some neighbours, who declined to be named in this story for fear they might be harassed by the police, said the fire was strange, and suggested the police should not consider the incident an ordinary one.

They wondered why a spark from a generator would engulf an entire building and kill its occupants so fast.

      Kano gave Buhari 1.9m votes———Abia state was givin less than 400 000 PVC–But Rivers state under APC got over 2m PVCs why———-can Jega explain

        Jega does not need to do any explanation, are you that dumb? my dear,its simple,while most of you Igbos are scattered everywhere,especially in Lagos and other Yoruba states,we Hausas stayed home in Kano and other Northern states to get counted for PVC. Igbos hate for Yorubas is finishing them,for this 4years and more,you go suffer and we’ll also send you out of Lagos and Kano.For voting the way you’ve voted,something must take!

      • Mr Igbo Sanity

        Anuofia, stop deceiving yourself. Abia PVC collection is 1,183,127 or 84.74 . but with card reader and 3 parties watching the election the total accredited votes allocated to the LOOSER jonathan is about 340,000. Without card reader jonathan would have gotten fake votes of 1,160,000 as he did in 2011

    I Am No Longer Interested in INEC Job – Prof Jega.

    Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof Attahiru Jega, said he would not serve another term, in the same capacity, even if his tenure was renewed.
    Jega who spoke in Abuja last night, said another person should be given the opportunity to serve after his (Jega) tenure ends in June.

    “I am grateful to God. I was asked to come and contribute my own quota to the national development and I have done my bit to the best of my ability.

    Whatever assignment one will do for five years just like this difficult one, to me if one is able to successfully accomplish the task, someone else should be given the opportunity, because for me I am not interested and if I am requested to serve again, I will not do it, by God’s grace,” Jega said.

    Jega, who anchored the March 28 presidential election, admitted that the INEC task was a difficult one, adding that he was not interested in tenure renewal and would not accept an offer of extension.

    • burning spear

      When the tenure of Iwu which was supposed to end in June—was asked to depart in April by Jonathan Tinubu and Falana hailed him–Jega was billed to start his terminal leave in March-14-but refused to go—the civil service law was openly flaunted by Jega with IMPUNITY VIA the backing of APC——-having completed the rigging of Buhari into power h now says i am due to go in June————–so my question is when is he due to start his terminal leave? since he was supposed to have started his 3 months before his final terminal date—-that is their Nigeria——one law for zonatan none for certificate–less ati the drug convicts in APC Buhari-

    • ConScience

We are watching the coupist and dictator, he promised us boko harams end in 2 months, he promised the $ would be 1 naira, he promised us electricity and corruption free government.

      • Olawale Badmus Bright

        Why are you people painting GEJ the second Jesus? As if has done something spectacular. Was he the first president in Africa that will concede? In case you don’t know, let me educate you a little bit…..

        1. ADEN ABDULLAH OSMAN DAAR (SOMALIA): Aden Daar is a
        Somali politician popularly known as Aden Adde. He was the first
        President of Somalia, serving from July 1, 1960 to June 10, 1967. Daar
        joined the incipient Somali Youth League (SYL) political party in 1944, a
        nationalist organization that campaigned for an independent Somalia.
        Quickly rising through the ranks, he became the local secretary of the
        SYL’s Beledweyne branch in 1946.

        A decade later, he became Chairman of the National Legislative
        Assembly, and would eventually lead the SYL itself two years afterwards.
        By the time Somalia gained its independence in 1960, Daar had attained
        widespread prominence as a nationalist figure.

        In short order, he was elected the country’s first President, a
        position he would assume from 1960 to 1967. Fellow SYL member Haji
        Bashir Ismail Yusuf would serve as the first President of the Somali
        National Assembly on 1 July 1960.

        In the 1967 presidential election, Daar was defeated by Abdirashid
        Ali Shermarke, his former Prime Minister. His term as president ended on
        June 10, 1967. Daar accepted the loss graciously, making history as the
        first head of state in Africa to peacefully hand over power to a
        democratically elected successor.

        2. KENNETH DAVID KAUNDA (ZAMBIA): Kenneth
        Kaunda served as the first President of Zambia

        The oil crisis of 1973 and a slump in export revenues put Zambia in a
        state of economic crisis. International pressure forced Kaunda to
        change the rules that had kept him in power.

        This actually led to a Multi-party elections in 1991, in which
        Frederick Chiluba, the leader of the Movement for Multiparty Democracy
        won. Kuanda being the leader of Zambia since independence could have
        rigged or might have not taken the outcome of the election. Kaunda
        surprised the world by stepping down for Frederick Chiluba in 1991.

        3. RUPIAH BWEZANI BANDA (ZAMBIA): Rupiah Banda is a
        Zambian politician who was President of Zambia from 2008 to 2011. During
        the Presidency of Kenneth Kaunda, Banda held important diplomatic posts
        and was active in politics as a member of the United National
        Independence Party(UNIP).

        Years later, he was appointed as Vice-Presidentby President Levy
        Mwanawasa in October 2006, following the latter’s re-election. He took
        over Mwanawasa’s presidential responsibilities after Mwanawasa suffered a
        stroke in June 2008, and following Mwanawasa’s death in August 2008, he
        became acting President. As the candidate of the governing Movement for
        Multiparty Democracy(MMD), he narrowly won the October 2008
        presidential election, according to official results.

        ambia, from 1964 to 1991. He
        was at the forefront of the struggle for independence from British rule.
        Dissatisfied with Nkumbula’s leadership of the African National
        Congress, he broke away and founded the Zambian African National
        Congress, later becoming the head of the United National Independence
        Party.

        He was the first President of the independent Zambia. From 1968, all
        political parties except UNIP were banned. At the same time, Kaunda
        oversaw the acquisition of majority stakes in key foreign-owned
        companies……

        The oil crisis of 1973 and a slump in export revenues put Zambia in a
        state of economic crisis. International pressure forced Kaunda to
        change the rules that had kept him in power.

        This actually led to a Multi-party elections in 1991, in which
        Frederick Chiluba, the leader of the Movement for Multiparty Democracy
        won. Kuanda being the leader of Zambia since independence could have
        rigged or might have not taken the outcome of the election. Kaunda
        surprised the world by stepping down for Frederick Chiluba in 1991.

        4. ABDOULAYE WADE (SENEGAL): In July
        2008, the National Assembly approved a constitutional amendment
        increasing the length of the presidential term to seven years, as it was
        prior to the adoption of the 2001 constitution.

        This extension would not apply to Wade’s 2007–2012 term, but Minister
        of Justice Madické Niangstressed on this occasion that Wade could
        potentially run for re-election in 2012 if he was still healthy. On
        January 27, 2012, Abdoulaye Wade was officially approved by the
        Constitutional Council to run for a highly controversial third and last
        term.

        Following this declaration, enraged mobs engaged in violent protests
        throughout the city. After the first round vote, Abdoulaye Wade
        acknowledged on 27 February 2012 that he had failed to win a majority in
        the election and would have to face a run-off.

        He subsequently lost the second round of voting, held on 25 March
        2012, to the opposition candidate Macky Sall; Sall had received the
        backing of all of the candidates who were defeated in the first round,
        and he defeated Wade by a wide margin. Wade conceded defeat and Sall
        succeeded Wade as President on 2 April 2012…… So my people GEJ is not hero and did not concede defeat for the sake of anything but for fear of West and Europe because he know quite well that failure to accept defeat, Gbagbo and Gadafi treatment awaits him.

          Are you OK. Why are you talking like someone from the space? If GMB did exactly this in, 2011 lives should have been saved. If Tofa did same in 1983 June 12 should have been alive. Fear God

        • Aloy

          So u knw history more than the CNN and Al Jazeera’s of this world. Unfortunately you hv notmbacked up ur submissions with verifiable references, so they are mere speculations, sorry!

      • Hondo Sina

        He should consult the great magician called David Copperfield. He may be able to show him how to achieve all the promises he made to us. If David Copperfied can’t help. ….Well too bad…

      • True Nigerian

        If Jonathan had not rigged as much as he did in 2011, Buhari would have congratulated him and the northerners would not have felt that their votes were stolen in the middle of the night.

        The greatest problem of Nigeria is that truth is rarely at the centre of the national conversation.

      • Otile

        Delusions and empty promises.

      • stone

        Buhari is beginning 2 face reality. he told Nigerians not to expect miracles, that if GEJ could nt ousted Boko haram in their 5-6yrs in office, we shouldn’t expect him 2 do it in months. contrary 2 his campaign abracadabra hahahahaha….. we r watching. he should pray Niger delta militants do nt rise + Boko. ya zama double wahala

  • burning spear

    we are watching buhari and tinubu–the greatest thing to happen to Gej was that he lost the election—-I am really seeing clearly the bigger picture—Aso Rock is good riddance to bad rubbish—-No need crying over spilled milk- Happily—-it has brought two foes together in the South————————–now we know who our real enemies are in the niger delta———–the struggle has just begun————– its not over until its over–let the Yaribas can go with their fulani brothers-enough of the treachery

    • Layo

      Your Jonathan would have gone the Gbagbo way and get slapped out of that seat, he is a bit smart Afterall.

      • Sincerely Yours

        Smart ke! Who gifted him such. He was adviced that it was the best way to go. He had no choice. Smart, don’t make me laugh.

        Mind u that if GEJ had wanted 2 cleave 2 power, he would hv done that & succeeded at d expense of ur blood. just thank God 4 d peace loving man

    HOW TO EARN N85,000 TO N340,000 AND ABOVE IN TWO WEEKS AND A MONTH, Powered by THE REDEEMED CHRISTIAN CHURCH OF GOD, KADUNA PROVINCE 1.

    Calvary greetings to you all, I am Pastor William Oladipo,The Provincial Pastor of THE REDEEMED CHRISTIAN CHURCH OF GOD, Kaduna Province 1. @ No.3 Nuhu Aliyu Crescent Barnawa G.R.A Kaduna. And I wish to introduce you all to a Wealth Empowerment Program tagged: HOW TO EARN N85,000 TO N340,000 AND ABOVE IN TWO WEEKS AND A MONTH, Powered by THE REDEEMED CHRISTIAN CHURCH OF GOD, KADUNA PROVINCE 1.

    it’s a financial empowerment program that was been introduced to members of THE REDEEMED CHRISTIAN CHURCH OF GOD under the RCCG KADUNA PROVINCE 1 and we decided to spread it out online so that members of the church in other states and the general public can benefit from the program.

    This is about an Online Investment Company that gives individuals and corporate investors the opportunity of earning in their investment platform. When you invest with the company, they trade with your fund on their platform and pay you a 7% interest of your capital daily for ten working days. Then at the end of the ten working days, the company pays back the initial start-up capital you used in investing. For instance if you invest N50,000 the company trades with it and pay you 7% of N50,000 which is N3,500 as an interest daily. Then you will be getting the N3,500 everyday until ten working days, after which the company pays you back the initial start up capital of N50,000 which you used in investing at first. The interest rate is based on “The higher the capital, the higher the interest” Which means that the amount the investor gets as interest is based on the amount he/she is investing.

    Personally, I joined this programme i’m about to review to you on 16th November 2012. It was been introduced to me by a member of my church who is a regional branch manager with SKYBANK Ibadan. I have lost so much in online and offline businesses like this. I was a victim of WONDER-BANKS, GETWAYCLUB, DOLLAR2DOLLAR, CASHTREE etc and as the saying goes “once bitten, twice shy” i was totally skeptical when he introduced STANDARD LIFE INVESTMENT to me due to my past experiences so i didn’t want to fall victim again but on a second thought, I gave them a practical trial by investing with them though it wasn’t a huge amount of money. I tried them with N500,000 worth of investment so that if it flops at the end of the day, i wouldn’t loose much but to God be the glory that at the end of the investment plan days, the outcome was positive. i got an alert on my account notifying me of the payment been made.

    I went further to learn more about their medius operandi and i realized that there are TWO ways you can earn from them, One is through investing in their different investment plans and the second one is through their referral bonus packages by referring or introducing other people to the programme. you make 20% of your downliners capital. The post you saw from me on the online forum is one of my online campaigns. I also do offline campaigns like SEMINARS, WORKSHOPS etc. I had my previous seminar in and Asaba while my current one will be in Ibadan and Calarba. As i keep telling my referrals, no matter how much i tell them about the genuineness of this programme, it is only practical trials that will fully convince them. So i urge you to give it a trial. As far as myself is concerned, this is real, lots of others and myself are living witnesses.

    BELOW IS THE INVESTMENT PACKAGES:

    AMOUNT………DAYS……DAILY INTEREST…..INVESTMENT INTEREST…….ROI

    50,000……………..10……………….3,500…………………………..35,000………………….85,000

    100,000……………10……………….7,000…………………………..70,000………………….170,000

    200,000……………10……………….14,000…………………………140,000………………..340,000

    300,000……………11……………….21,000…………………………231,000………………..531,000

    400,000……………12……………….28,000…………………………336,000………………..736,000

    500,000……………15……………….35,000…………………………525,000………………..1,025,000

    METHOD OF OPERATION………….

    If you invest N50,000 naira with the company

    the company uses it to trade on forex and makes 10% interest daily of your initial investment for 10 working days which will total up to 100% interest at the end of the 10 working days investment interest plan.

    After that, the company pays you 70% interest and takes 30% as their share of the investment.

    it’s simple and easy invest N50,000 for 10 working days.

    forex pays………………………………… 10% daily of your initial investment

    10% multiplied by 10 days =…………….. 100%

    you take……………………………………70% of N50,000 = N35,000

    the company takes…………………………30% of N50,000 = N15,000

    total =……………………………………..100% of N50,000 = N50,000

    N85,000 will be your ROI for investing N50,000 with the company for

    just 10 working days.

    In all you will get your N50,000 initial investment and N35,000

    interest = N85,000 in 10 days.

    The same procedure is applicable when you invest N500,000, N400,000, N300,000, N200,000 and N100,000

    The interest rate is based on “The higher the capital, the higher the interest” Which means that the amount the investor gets as interest is based on the amount he/she is investing.

  • Jaspa Matanga

    Please Nigerians, let us give peace a chance. President Jonathan has conceded defeat and Buhari has assured him that he has nothing to fear. If our Principals have embraced peace, let all of us, their supporters, emulate them by not acting in ways that will generate tension.

  • kukute

    APC will give him a befitting burial. No problem about that one.
    He gave APC un-precedented 1.9 million votes in Kano, not so?

    • Saydo Shan

      PDPigs got over 1.2million votes in Delta State. I am not a stranger to Delta State. So 1.9million votes for APC in Kano is nothing. 4million votes for APC in Kano wd have even been conservative.

      • iretidoll

        So, at the end of this nice debate nobody here can explain Abia state’s
        300,000 votes that the corrupt Professor Jega allocated to Jonathan?

    • Arabakpura

      1.9million out of 4.6 million in Kano while in Rivers; it was 1.45 million out of 2.1 million! Do the arithmetic ratio wise!

      • ike

        We are talking of Abia state, my friend. Jonathan got 1.178 million there in the 2011 election.
        But in 2015 election, the tribally corrupt Attahiru Jega said Jonathan had only 300,000 voters!

        • Otile

          We are surely going back to the dark ages.

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            So you, @Otile, finally, shamelessly crawled out of your dark cage after the resounding defeat and crash of your locust army?

            If you are scared of the APC light, you can crawl straight back, you won’t be missed.

        • Arabakpura

          That was before PVC! What happened after PVC. Also compare the votes from the SW. Stop being naive!

        • stone

          D truth is that many easterners were frustrated in collecting their PVC & could nt vote.

    • kunskuns

      Professor Attahiru Jega has better have complete accounts of INEC ready

      for the auditors to show he did no steal one Naira; otherwise, he should go

      and see his tailor to take his measurement for his prison wears. He will not
      walk away free from his crime scene. That is for sure. By June 2nd, he will

      likely be in EFCC detention than on his bed with any illicit booty from INEC.
      Orubebe’s open protest was intended to put that warning across to Jega,
      that his PVC shenanigans through dis-enfranchisement of southerners
      and north-central voters, in favour of Fulani candidate -Muhammadu Buhari,
      are well-known. The next 4 years will be horrid for Jega and his accomplices.

      • Eddie

        YES, THAT IS WHAT THE RULE OF LAW REQUIRES: ACCOUNTABILITY!!!!

    • dafe omonitoriwon

      THE REAL CORRUPT MIND BEHIND THE FIXED 2015 ELECTION
      IS PROFESSOR ATTAHIRU JEGA WHO MUST BE BROUGHT
      TO JUSTICE IN A COURT OF LAW WITHOUT DELAY.

      • K.K

        Professor Attahiru Jega has better have complete accounts of INEC ready

          ..

          • Phil

            How can Jonathan fail to out-run an in-eligible opponent at a general election? How?
            An in-eligible candidate is like a cripple who can’t run and is legally forbidden to run.
            All anyone needs to outrun an invalid opponent at a general election is a point of law.

            An in-eligible candidate – like Buhari – runs election at his own risk until declared invalid.
            Buhari’s 15.3 million votes are invalid in law. A court of law need just pronounce that fact.
            That’s how to defeat an in-eligible opponent at a general election without breaking sweat.

          • freeborn

            ..

          • damilola olasunkanmi

            Phil:

            It is up to Buhari to tender his Cambridge certificate to the High court and file
            a motion for judgment in his own favour. If he can’t do that he is dis-qualified by
            the 1999 Constitution (as amended). I have finished voting for him. I can’t help
            him on this perjury. Buhari is solely responsible for his own mess.

            PDP did not tell him to commit an offence and be expelled from secondary school

            or did PDP ask him to tell lies on his INEC Form in December 2014. Buhari’s biggest

            mistake was to ask the current Katsina State Provincial School Principal to type out

            some bogus ‘result’ – dated 2014. That mistake will destroy any defence Buhari might

            otherwise have. That bogus ‘result’ is not admissible in court. WASC is a public document.

          • olufemi Awosanya

            Phil:

            What you said above is food for thought for the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP].
            For i never heard any lawyer say Buhari can escape MANDATORY dis-qualification
            under the 1999 Constitution without showing his Cambridge/Wasc certificate; if any,
            dated 1961; signed and sealed by the Registrar of Cambridge, on 44-year-old paper.

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            The blind, following the blind may end up dying in ignorance.

            Your corrupt military suddenly found the “missing certificates” two days ago.

            In the meantime, GMB / PYO have complied with our request for them to show their certificates.

          • objective

            I honestly sympathise with you. You need help!

      • checkmate

        Why was he not prosecuted after he declared Jonathan the winner in 2011? Thanks to Card Reader for defeating the PDP rigging machine. Thanks to JEGA for insisting on the use of card rader despite pressures. Thanks to Nigerians who came out and voted out the clueless man and his wicked party. SAI BUHARI!!!

        • stone

          U guys r nothing but rat minds. thank God 4 person like GEJ. if d feeble & ineffective card reader did nt stop Kano, kaduna, bauchi & katsina in their electoral malpractices, u do u rats think that South East cannot do better than u piple in d same malpractice. APC owes everything 2 GEJ.

    • checkmate

      And what did the Lantern Professor from Rivers as well as other returning officers from SS and SE gave Jonathan? Your rigging machine has failed to function this time around. Thanks to Card Reader. Deal with your frustration. SAI BUHARI!!!

  • Parasitic foolani

    We are gradually going back to OBJ era, where persons with damaging information are being killed. Surely, this man and his family were murdered by APC and its highly western connected forces. This man may have informed a close associate about what transpired in the Kano election and how his conscience might force him to talk if confronted by security forces. APC surely, one way or the other got to know about this and decided to eliminate him and his wife who may be in the know. Nigerians should be ready for the worse with APC in power, as many political opponents might be eliminated and forced to go on exile if anyone of them tries to divulge any information that can be damaging to the APC govt. Nigerians should watch out for more before May 29th 2015.

    • nnamdi

      @parasitic:

      There is nothing strange to a fire incident. Premium Times must stop being biased.
      In Balogun market in Lagos there have been three [3] fire incidents this year alone.
      Was that not serial enough to be called strange, but nobody has made such silly call.
      APC folks are the self-suspecting ones calling this fire incident strange – without arson.

      • Mrs Flora

        EDITOR:

        I am praying to God for one thing. APC must not be qualified to enter Aso Villa.
        These rabid, half-educated Muslims in APC will destroy Nigeria. They are urchins.
        Someone had a fire incident in his own house, APC is now looking for PDP to blame.
        These APC Muslims have NEVER rendered state accounts to the governed anywhere.
        They are criminal Muslims mentally bent on stealing the treasury as APC party ideology.
        I than God the law is there in the Constitution to nullify all the votes cast for APC in 2015.
        Nobody must go and remove that law overnight, please! Buhari is NOT morally qualified.

        • sho

          APC has never claimed to be a party for educated people or for the morally upright.
          APC is a criminal organization – full of illterate Alhajis – signifying nothing.

        OTILE:

        APC HAD NO CANDIDATE IN 2015 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

        So, all the road accidents in the 19 Northern states, after the election, are mysterious too?
        I beg my brother go sit down somewhere! APC had no candidate in the 2015 election. Simple!
        That fact was brought out clearly when Buhari’s false claim was detected in December 2014.
        APC knew they had no valid candidate but went ahead to contest the 2015 election.

        What did Bola Tinubu and his other barely literate slow-thinkers expect will happen next? Tell me!
        That once they say their in-eligible candidate is called Muhammadu Buhari, the court will just bow?
        Look, my friend, Buhari’s 15 million voters are a minority compared to the 178 million who own
        the 1999 Constitution and will defend it to the letter. Nigeria’s Constitution overrides 15m voters.

        • Croft

          Tell them my broda. If they (APC) think by may 29 their in-eligible candidate will be sworn in as President, I want to confidently tell them that it will not happen except APC is finally bigger than our constitution and Nigeria and if so, let them expect the worse…
