58 Old Man arraigned for allegedly forging three confirmation of appointment letters

News48hrs.com reports that Edo State Police Command, on Monday, arraigned a 58-year-old man, Solomon Osunobun, before an Oredo Magistrates’ Court in Benin for allegedly forging three confirmation of [post_ad] appointment letters in the state civil service.

The accused was arraigned on two counts bordering on forgery.
The prosecution told the court that Osunobun and others now at large had, between the months of May 6, 1988, and September 1995, forged the letters at the state Ministry of Transport.
The suspect and his accomplices were said to have claimed that the letters were issued by the then Commissioner of Works and Transport. The prosecution said they committed an offence “punishable under sections 516 and 467 of the Criminal Code, Cap 48, Vol. II, Law of the defunct Bendel State of Nigeria, 1976, now applicable in Edo State.”
Osunobun pleaded not guilty to the charges and was granted bail by the presiding magistrate, C. A. Nwoha, in the sum of N50,000, with a surety who must be a resident in Benin.
The court, however, turned down a request by the defence counsel, Robert Imafidon, to have copies of the case file for cross examination.
The case was adjourned till August 26, 2015.
