The charges were filed by the Independent National Electoral Commissionat the high court in Yola, the state capital.
In a statement on Thursday, INEC said it took the action after reviewing the case file from the police which established a prima facie case against Yunusa-Ari.
The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) had arrested Yunusa-Ari over his conduct during the governorship election in Adamawa.
He was, however, granted administrative bail and asked to report to the headquarters of the NPF every weekday.
