We are not aware of circulated report on Gov’s alleged forgery– Police

The Nigeria Police Force has dissociated itself from a document purportedly containing conclusions of an investigation into allegations against the Ondo State Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, saying it did not originate from the force.

According to the police, the document alleges fraudulent misrepresentation, certificate forgery, examination malpractice, and perjury against the governor.

This was made known on Friday in a statement by ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, Force Public Relations Officer, Force Headquarters, Abuja.

Aiyedatiwa is facing allegations that his academic credentials are fake.


Adejobi said the alleged signatory of the document, a Deputy Commissioner of Police, does not have the authority to release such a report on behalf of the Force Criminal Investigation Department, FCID, or any other such departments within the Nigeria Police Force.

“The Nigeria Police Force is currently investigating the origin of the said document and the circumstances surrounding its circulation. We urge the public to exercise caution and refrain from spreading unverified information that could potentially tarnish the reputation of individuals or public officials.

“Furthermore, we assure the public that any official communication or report regarding investigations conducted by the Nigeria Police Force will be released through appropriate channels,” he added.
