Edobor Williams, Ugesia Godwin and Amedu Anakhu had filed the case alleging that the governor forged his academic certificate.

Joined as respondents in the suit were the governors’ party, the Congress, the Inspector-General of Police and Obaseki himself.

But when the case came up on Monday, neither the legal representatives of Obaseki’s accusers nor the governor’s showed up.

Anwuli Chikere, the judge, subsequently, struck out the case.

The plaintiffs alleged in the suit marked, FHC/ABJ/CS/553/2020, that the University of Ibadan certificate which he attached to his Form CF.001 which he submitted to INEC for his first term election in 2016 was forged.

They argued that the governor’s educational information contained in Part C of the Form CF 001 which he submitted to INEC on July 12, 2016 and the first-degree certificate of Bachelor of Arts in Classical Studies, said to have been obtained from the University of Ibadan, Ibadan, was forged.
