The Department of State Services (DSS) and the London Metropolitan Police Service have received petitions to probe the documents which are said to have been obtained from the Cambridge University and presented by President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential election petition tribunal.
TheCable reports that it received copies of the separate petitions which were dated August 14, 2019, which were forwarded by a Nigerian legal practitioner named Kalu Kalu Agu.
The President’s chief of staff, Abba Kyari told the tribunal that he obtained the Buhari’s ‘assessment’ documents from the Cambridge University.
He was quoted when saying he personally signed and collected the documents on behalf of the Nigerian President.
However, the UK-based examination body oversaw the conduct of the final year secondary school examinations in Nigeria and placement into foreign universities in the 1960s.
In the 2 petitions forwarded by Kalu Agu, the lawyer questioned the authenticity of the ‘certifying statement’ which was said to have been obtained from the Cambridge Assessment International Education.
Mr Agu asked the UK police and the DSS to probe and launch an investigation into the circumstances leading to the procurement of the document.
