The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), has filed a lawsuit against the Independent National Electoral Commission over its failure to investigate allegations of electoral violence and other electoral offences including bribery against some state governors and their deputies during the 2023 elections.

According to reports, the recently concluded presidential, national assembly, and governorship elections in some states witnessed widespread reports of voter suppression, voter intimidation and the destruction or theft of election materials by political party agents and thugs across the six geopolitical zones. The suit filed last Friday at the Federal High Court, Abuja SERAP is asking the court for an order compelling INEC to seek the appointment of an independent counsel to investigate allegations of electoral offences against state governors. SERAP also asked court to compel INEC to prosecute all arrested electoral offenders in the 2023 general election in the custody of law enforcement and anticorruption agencies.
