Law maker sued for school certificate forgery

A member of the Ogun State House of Assembly representing the Remo North State Constituency, Adeleye Adewale Adebiyi, is being sued by Remo North residents in the Federal High Court of Abeokuta for presenting forged school certificates to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) before the last April 11, 2015 election and for false age declaration.

According to the plaintiffs, Mr. Adebiyi falsely claimed to have attended Ode Remo Community High School from 1986 to 1993 and that he earned an ordinary national diploma (OND) from the Federal College of Freshwater Fisheries Technology in New Bussa, Niger State. Mr. Adebiyi allegedly attached a false school leaving certificate and national diploma examination result to the CF-001 form rather than the proper OND.

INEC will join Mr. Adebiyi as his co-defendant at a hearing, which will take place at the Federal High Court of Abeokuta on June 6, 2016.
