Rep Who Forged BSc, Masters Degrees To Be Arraigned April 11


The Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offenses Commission (ICPC) has accused a member of the House of Representatives, Mohammed Garba Gololo (Gamawa Federal Constituency of Bauchi State), of forging his first and second degrees’ certificates.

In an eight-count charge it filed at the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), the commission said Garba-Gololo claimed to have attended the Lagos State University (LASU), where he purportedly obtained both certificates.

The ICPC alleged that the lawmaker presented forged Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree with Second Class Honours (Upper Division) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to contest election.

His arraignment before Justice K. N. Ogbonnaya of the High Court of the FCT in Kubwa was put off when he failed to attend court.

Justice Ogbonnaya has rescheduled the arraignment for April 11.
