The All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for Edu/Moro/Patigi federal constituency of Kwara State for the 2023 general election, Alhaji Saba Ahmed Adamu, has been dragged before a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), over alleged falsification of academic records.
The Inspector-General of Police (IGP) in a five-count charge brought against Adamu, said the APC candidate falsely presented a forged B.Sc certificate in Economics from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.
According to the Penal Code law, any person who forges any document, writing, or seal, is guilty of an offence punishable by imprisonment up to 14 years in each of the count charges.
Adamu, if convicted, risks imprisonment of up to 50 years.
According to the charge dated November 21, 2022, signed by Mr. F. Gabriel, the APC candidate was also said to have used the forged certificate to secure mobilisation for National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme, contrary to Section 363 of Penal Code Act.
