Abuja-based Lawyer Files Fresh Criminal Suits Against Tinubu For Alleged Forgery, Age Falsification

Tinubu’s lawyer is the complainant in three separate direct criminal complaints filed at the court, while Tinubu is the lone defendant in the cases numbered CR/121/2022, CR/122/2022, and CR/123/2022, respectively.

Mike Enahoro-Ebah, an Abuja-based lawyer, has filed a petition in a Chief Magistrate’s Court in Wuse Zone 6, Abuja, challenging the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, on claims of certificate forgery, age falsification, and lying under oath.

Tinubu’s lawyer is the complainant in three separate direct criminal complaints filed at the court, while Tinubu is the lone defendant in the cases numbered CR/121/2022, CR/122/2022, and CR/123/2022, respectively.

The suits, dated November 9 and filed by the lawyer himself on November 10, 2022, were brought under sections 88(1), 89(3), 109(a), 110(c), and 115(1)(b) and 119 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA), 2015; and under the inherent jurisdiction and powers of the court secured by Section 6(6)(a) of the Nigerian Constitution, 1999.

He claimed that documents obtained from Chicago State University by his attorney in the United States, Matthew J. Kolwals, pursuant to a subpoena in 22-L-007289, contained material information that contradicted Tinubu’s sworn Form EC-9 Affidavit In Support of Personal Particulars submitted to INEC on June 17, 2022.

In case number: CR/121/2022, Enahoro-Ebah alleged that Tinubu presented “a forged Chicago State University certificate to INEC with intent that it may be acted upon as genuine, thereby committed the offence of forgery contrary to Sections 362(a), 363 and 364 of the Penal Code Act, Cap. 532, Laws of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.”

The copy of the Chicago State University Certificate supplied by the institution, according to Enahoro-Ebah, is “radically different” from the copy attached to Tinubu’s attested Form EC-9 filed to INEC on June 17.

A direct comparison of both certificates, according to him, reveals different dates of issue by the university (June 22, 1979 and June 27, 1979); different university logos on both certificates; different grammatical construction on the faces of the certificates; and different signatures, among other things.

According to Enahoro-Ebah, a transcript from Southwest College, Chicago, bearing the name “Tinubu Bola A,” which belongs to a female student, was submitted in support of the defendant’s undergraduate admission application form submitted to Chicago State University in 1977, contrary to Form EC-9 submitted to INEC, which indicated Tinubu is a man.

The lawyer also claimed that the Tinubu who attended the university indicated in his undergraduate admission application form that he graduated from Government College, Lagos in 1970, whereas the defendant provided no information about his attendance at the said Government College, Lagos in his Form EC-9 submitted to INEC, among other allegations.

Meanwhile, no hearing date has been set.
