In a petition signed by the APC chairman in the state, Olajide Awe and made available to reporters in Ado Ekiti, the party requested Arase to investigate the roles of the police in the alleged poll fraud with specific investigation of AIG Nasarawa, who headed the police contingents that supervised the election.

The party called for Selenkere’s prosecution because of his alleged unprofessional conduct bordering on dishonesty and violations of the code of ethics of the Nigerian Police Force.
