The Kwara State Polytechnic has accused former
Examiner of Chartered Institute of Stockbrokers
of Nigeria (CISN), Mr. Christopher Asaju of
frustrating alleged certificate forgery case
brought against him.

Asaju is currently standing trial before a Lagos
Magistrate Court sitting in Igbosere for allegedly
forging a Higher National Diploma (HND)
certificate of the polytechnic.
Penultimate Thursday, the Chief Magistrate P.I
Bakare read a letter of protest, which the
institution addressed to the court lamenting
undue delay in Asaju’s prosecution and different
ploys the accused person had deployed to
frustrate it.

The Kwara Poly alleged that Asaju deliberately
cooked up his involvement in an auto crash, in a
bid to slow down his trial and thus get the case
frustrated.

The polytechnic added that the accused person
presented a medical report from a hospital “with
no verifiable address”, to justify his claim that he
suffered broken neck in a recent road accident.

Asaju has been arraigned since March 2017 for
allegedly forging the HND certificate in Computer
Science, of the Kwara State Polytechnic.

After his trial began in December 2018, only an
examination of Kwara Poly’s witness by the
counsel to the Lagos State Directorate of Public
Prosecution (DPP), was conducted, as further
trial had been stalled until last week, owing to
the claim by the accused person that he had a
road accident and suffered broken neck.

While in court last week, however, Asaju
appeared in neck bandage and dawdled as he
walked. Meanwhile, the Kwara Poly’s letter led to
crossfire between counsel to the complainant
and that of the defendant.

Asaju’s lawyer, Mrs. Taiwo Obajemu, said she
took exception to the description of Bethel
Hospital in Lagos that issued her client a
medical report as “without verifiable address”,
claiming the hospital was well known.
But counsel to the complainant, Mr. Jasper
Omomhenle, said the claim of involvement in an
auto crash by the accused person must also be
matched with inconveniences caused the Kwara
Polytechnic that kept spending money to send its
witness on each adjournment.

Shortly after, Chief Magistrate Bakare resumed
trial, during which the Kwara Poly’s witness, Mr.
Abdulateef Lanre-Adi, a principal assistant
registrar, was cross-examined by Obajemu.

Lanre-Adi told the court that Asaju only
graduated from the polytechnic with a 1993
Ordinary National Diploma (OND) in Computer
Science, “which he has not claimed till date”, but
later forged a 1998 HND certificate in same
Computer Science, ascribed to Kwara Poly.
