We describe observational characteristics of three Extremely Red MIR-bright Objects (ERMOs, satisfying R - [15] ≥ 6.5 AB mag) found in the AKARI North Ecliptic Pole (NEP) deep field at z=1.5-2.2, showing broad Mg II emission (~5000 km sec-1) while their broad-band spectral energy distributions (SEDs) at optical and mid-infrared are power-law, similar to that of the type- 2 AGN. Since their SEDs cannot be explained solely by any AGN dust torus templates, we propose that the stellar population co-exists with the AGN dust torus. The interstellar dust clouds associated with the stellar population may be responsible for the extinction of the broad-line regions.
