3 PDP chieftains to be prosecuted for forgery, impersonation

Three chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party in Enugu have been recommended for trial by the Federal Ministry of Justice over case of alleged forgery.

The recommendation was made by the Director of Public Prosecution, in response to a petition submitted to the police headquarters, by Dennis Oguerinwa Amadi, who represents Udi/Ezeagu Federal constituency at the House of Representatives.

Amadi alleged that the PDP members forged documents in which a former member of the National Assembly benefited.

The investigating police officer, Emmanuel Mordi, said in its report: “Considering the overwhelming evidence that flows from the finding of facts in this case, it is conclusive that the suspects may have committed the offence of conspiracy to wit: forgery, impersonation, altering and perjury.”

The DPP Muhammad Saidu Diri, who signed the document on behalf of the Solicitor General of the Federation, said: “We have carefully perused the case file, it was discovered that the evidence available disclosed an offence of forgery which is a state offence.

“I am therefore directed to request you to forward the case file to the office of the Honourable Attorney-General and Commissioner of Justice, Enugu State for prosecution.”
