Court dismisses Ize-Iyamu’s certificate forgery suit against Obaseki

    Obaseki and Ize-Iyamu

    The Supreme Court today dismissed a suit brought before it by Osagie Ize-Iyamu’s of the All Progressives Congress (APC), challenging Governor Godwin Obaseki’s election in Edo State.

    In a judgement delivered by Justice Emmanuel Agim, the apex court held that the appellants failed to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt.

    “The appellants failed woefully to prove their case, they did not provide any disclaimer from the school that the result was not issued by them to Obaseki.

    “This court agrees with the lower courts completely, that the appellants did not meet sufficient requirement to prove their case,” Agim said.

    The Supreme Court, therefore, awarded a cost of one million naira in favour of Governor Obaseki.

    The appeal court in Abuja had dismissed the suit challenging Obaseki’s certificates on March 18.

    The appeal was filed by the All Progressives Congress against the January 9 judgment of the Federal High Court in Abuja affirming the authenticity of the academic certificates presented by Obaseki.
