ICPC arraigns former poly rector on certificate forgery

Former Rector of Igbajo Polytechnic, Igbajo, Osun State, Mr Akinola Olaolu, has been arraigned by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission.

Olaolu was arraigned before an Osun State High Court on four counts of certificate forgery and false statements.

This was about two years after a series of investigations by our correspondent exposed the former rector as an alleged serial forger.

He had been appointed the acting rector of the polytechnic after claiming to be a PhD holder in Economics from the University of Ibadan.

He, however, had only a notification of results to show as evidence of his doctorate, as those who questioned his academic qualification were allegedly sacked.

Our correspondent started an investigation into the case in May 2018 and was informed by the UI authorities that the notification of results was forged.

Shortly after, Olaolu produced a certificate, which he said he had just got from the varsity.

Again, the university management denied issuing the document.
