Group asks court to compel IGP to probe Adeosun over NYSC certificate forgery

Group asks court to compel IGP to probe Adeosun over NYSC certificate forgery

The Human and Environmental Development Agenda Resource Centre (HEDA) has filed an ex parte motion before the Federal High Court in Lagos, seeking the probe of Kemi Adeosun, Minister of Finance.

HEDA is requesting an order compelling Ibrahim Idris, Inspector-General of Police (IGP), to investigate the allegations of certificate forgery against the minister.

In a petition earlier forwarded to the IGP, HEDA had asked the police to investigate Adeosun and if found guilty, prosecute her.

In a statement on Sunday, Olanrewaju Suraju, HEDA chairman, said it chose to approach the court to ensure that the matter is not swept under the carpet “like most of such allegations involving politically exposed persons”.

It prayed the court for, “An order granting leave to the applicant to apply for an order of mandamus compelling the office of the IGP to investigate and publish its report on the allegations of forgery of NYSC certificate against Nigeria’s finance minister; Mrs. Kemi Adeosun.

“And for such further order or orders as the honourable court may deem fit to make in the circumstances.”
