Akwa Ibom House of Rep member arrested for OND certificate forgery

Akwa Ibom State House of Representatives member, Nse Bassey Ekpenyong, was arrested in connection to a certificate forgery scam. He ran into trouble when an NGO petitioned the EFCC alleging that he committed perjury and financial crimes.

Investigations by the EFCC showed that Ekpenyong did not attend the Polytechnic as alleged by the petitioner and the Ordinary National Diploma did not emanate from the institution.
