Lawyer Finally Strikes Out Buhari’s Forged WAEC Result Law Suit Over Deadly Threats

The Federal High Court sitting at Abuja, on Thursday 30th June, 2016, strike out the case against President Muhammadu Buhari, based on the notice filed by a legal practitioner, Nnamdi Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe, to discontinue the suit he instituted seeking the disqualification of the President.

Recall that Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe, had alleged that Buhari was not qualified to aspire for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, because he did not sit for the Cambridge West African School Certificate, WASC, in 1961 as he claimed.

“Take note that the plaintiff in this originating summons, Nnamdi Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe, hereby, discontinues this action”, According to THISDAY.

Records show that following the withdrawal of the suit from court, the trial judge, Justice Ademola Adeniyi, on Thursday, June 30, strikes out the case.

Though Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe did not give any reason for withdrawing the case from the court, ThisDay gathered that it might not be unconnected with alleged threats to his life and members of his family.

In an interview last month, Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe, had alleged that there were some subtle threats on him to withdraw the case from court.

He had said: “Of course, I am concerned and my family and friends are too; I am not naïve and some subtle threats have already been made. For now it is small comfort that if anything happens to me, even if disguised as an accident or anything, Nigerians will know exactly who is responsible.
