A Senior Protocol Office in the Ministry of Power, Works, and Housing, Haruna Maikudi, has been arrested for an alleged crime of forging the signature and identity card of the Honourable Minister of the same ministry, Babatunde Raji Fashola.

According to a statement by Sunday James, the spokesperson of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), Haruna had forged the identity in a letter issued to one Abubakar Mustapha Bida to procure an Official Passport.

Following his arrest, he is now being arraigned at the Federal High Court, Abuja before Justice Taiwo Taiwo and has been charged with conspiracy, making false statement for the purpose of procuring Nigerian passport and engaging in forgery.

Meanwhile, the Comptroller General of the NIS has advised prospective applicants seeking the Nigerian passport to avoid false declarations, forgery and use of fake breeder documents.

He also vowed that anyone found culpable will be prosecuted in accordance with the provision of the law related to ‘Passport Offences’.
