A report by Punch Metro, the police in Ogun State have arrested a contestant for the vacant stool of Oba of Iwoye in the Ilaro Yewa South Local Government Area of the state for alleged certificate forgery.

Fagbemi Waheed was arrested following a petition to the police that he was allegedly in possession of forged    West African Senior School Certificate Examination results.

Spokesman for the police in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said in a statement on Tuesday they arrested Waheed following a petition from the chambers of one R.R.A. & Associates.

He said the petitioners alleged that   Waheed forged his secondary school certificate number NGSG 809573 he claimed to have obtained in 1988.

Oyeyemi said, “The petitioners further stated that the said Alhaji Fagbemi Waheed forged the said certificate for the purpose of using it to contest the throne of Oluwoye of Iwoye.”

The officer added that the officer in charge of the Anti-kidnapping section had been directed to investigate the matter.

He said, “The suspect was arrested and a search warrant was executed in his house where the forged certificate was allegedly recovered.

“Investigations further revealed that the certificate bearing the  number actually belonged  to one Raimot Omotola Adebayo.”

Oyeyemi said, “On interrogation, the suspect confessed that he collected the certificate from the owner under  the pretence he wanted to use it to secure a  job for her.

“But he took it to a cybercafe where he superimposed his own name on it and printed it out as original.

“He stated further that he did so because he wanted to contest the obaship  of his town.”

He said the state  Commissioner of Police,  Kenneth Ebrinson, had directed that the suspect be charged after investigations were concluded.
