The Nigerian Police have charged a 48-year-old lawyer, Boniface Ugwuowo, before a Federal High Court in Abuja over forged documents.

In a 12-count charge, the police accused Ugwuowo of submitting forged documents to the Supreme Court to qualify him for the rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN.

The lawyer’s formal arraignment, scheduled for December 3, 2020, was put off due to the failure of the prosecution to produce him when the case was called in the court.

Justice Okon Abang, who was unhappy with the prosecution’s absence even when there was evidence that it was aware of the date, rescheduled the arraignment for February 23, 2021.

Ugwuowo is said to have, by his acts, committed offences contrary to Section 1(2)(c) of the Miscellaneous Offences Act CAP M17 LFN 2004.
