Osun rerun: NBA observers arrested at Orolu

Three members of the Nigerian Bar Association Observer group have been arrested by policemen at Ifon on their way to monitor the rerun election in some of the polling units in Orolu Local Government Area.

One of the lawyers, Mrs Abibat Oriekun, told our correspondent that policemen stopped the car she and her colleagues were travelling in and arrested them even after they showed police their INEC accreditation pass.

Oriekun, who said she had spent 23 years at the bar said the policemen shouted at them.

She said they met one commissioner of police,  Ali Janga, who she claimed asked them to be taken to the INEC office.

Oriekun said, ” Luckily, we saw Festus Okoye, who came to collect materials and he identified us as observers and we were released.”
