An unemployed graduate identified as Raymond Azuka,has been convicted by a High Court in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) for forging the signature of former Finance Minister, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.
The case was filed on May 19, 2015, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The anti-graft agency stated Azuka, a Higher National Diploma (HND) graduate from the Federal Polytechnic, Oko, Anambra State, reportedly forged a reference letter purportedly from Okonjo-Iweala in a bid to get a job with the Nigerian Security Printing and Minting, (NSPM).
In convicting Azuka, Justice Baba Idris, fixed Dec. 7, for sentencing.
Baba held that out of the six counts, the court convicted Azuka on two counts.
He held that the confessional statements by the defendant contained the evidence where the defendant admitted forging the reference letter purported to have been signed by Okonjo-Iweala.
Baba held that the admittance was the best evidence and in this instance, the defendant admitted forging the reference letters and EFCC provided graphic evidence of that too.
