INEC official Christian Nwosu, on Thursday alleged that he was cajoled into confessing to taking a bribe of N30m to compromise the 2015 general elections.

 

Nwosu, who is being prosecuted before the Federal High Court in Lagos for alleged bribery, claimed that the three confessional statements he made to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on December 28, 2016 and March 15 and 22, 2017 were not done voluntarily.

 

He claimed to have been threatened and cajoled to make the confessional statements, adding that he was not given the opportunity to consult his lawyer before he made the statements.
