The Enugu State Police Command, on Monday, arraigned the traditional ruler-elect of the Ogugu community in the Awgu Local Government Area of the state, Chief Emmanuel Ogbonna, before the Enugu South Magistrates’ Court for perjury.

The police accused Ogbonna of claiming on oath to be an engineer when he had no qualifying certificate to back the claim.

The two counts read, “That you, Chief Emmanuel Muodebel Ogbonna, sometime in 2011 at the Enugu State High Court, Awgu Division, within the jurisdiction of this honourable court did make an oath in suit No. HAW/01/2011 between Chief Emmanuel Muodebel Ogbonna and Jonas Uchenwa and six others, that you are an engineer when you knew you never obtained any professional qualifying certificate, thereby committing an offence contrary to Section 145 and punishable under Section 146 of the Criminal Code, Cap 30, Vol. II, Revised Laws of Enugu State of Nigeria, 2004.
