We Were Not Aware Of Adeosun NYSC Exemption Certificate Forgery- Police

The  Nigeria police on Friday said were not aware that the former Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun was presenting a forged National Youth Service Corps exemption certificate.

The Force failed to investigate or prosecute a former Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, for certificate forgery but now prosecute the Osun State governorship candidate of the opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Adeosun resigned as minister on September 14 following an investigation which indicted her for presenting a forged National Youth Service Corps exemption certificate.

She subsequently left for London, United Kingdom less than 24 hours after tendering her resignation letter.

The police claimed that they had no idea that she was involved in the forgery of the NYSC exemption certificate.

The Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, told our correspondent in Abuja on Friday, that there was no formal complaint against the ex-minister. He explained that Adeosun was not prosecuted for forgery because she was not investigated by the Force.

“ We don’ t know anything about her case because nobody reported any matter to us, we didn’ t have any complaint against her, and nobody complained or reported to us. The Force has no knowledge of any case, ” Moshood stated.

When told that the matter was covered by the media for months, he retorted, “ Did you (our correspondent) report to us ?”

Reminded that a non -governmental organisation, Human and Environmental Development Agenda Resource Centre, had petitioned the Inspector – General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to probe the forgery allegations against Adeosun before she resigned, Moshood directed further inquiries to the NGO.
