Sani Magaji, a retired police commissioner of Akwa Ibom state, has accused Shehu Sani, senator representing Kaduna central, of forgery, vowing to take him to court.
In a petition to Adams Oshiomhole, national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Magaji alleged that the senator forged his signature on a document said to be an endorsement of direct primary election in the state.
The former police commissioner said he is disturbed that there is an attempt to link him to a “dubious endorsement.”
“I wish to draw the attention of Mr. Chairman and the etire leadership of our great party to the media publications spearheaded by senator Shehu Sani, containing a purported endorsement of direct primaries in which my name and signature were forged,” the petition read.
“As a retired commissioner of police, I feel disturbed by this reckless attempt to link my image and the professional integrity I have built over the years, to that dubious endorsement.
“By going as far as criminally including my name in the purported endorsement and forging my signature, senator Shehu Sani and his collaborators have gone beyond the boundaries of law because of political desperation.
“As an experienced law enforcement officer, I find this criminal act repugnant, indecent, a smear on decorum and therefore totally unacceptable.
