The Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has said that a copy of his United Kingdom passport that was recently posted online was forged.
Saraki, who said he had contacted his......lawyer in the UK to write relevant agencies on the issue, called for a thorough investigation into the matter.
A scanned copy of a UK passport carrying the identity of the Senate President has, for weeks, been trending on the Internet. It was published alongside a report that alleged that he had sworn an oath of allegiance to the UK.
But Saraki distanced himself from the passport, though he admitted that he had a UK citizenship.
“Saraki, on July 19, 2015, instructed his solicitors in the UK to write the UK Home Office to commence an immediate investigation into this act of criminality. There is no doubt that this is a typical criminal offence against the state and also an act of defamation of character against the President of the Senate. Whoever is found responsible should be prosecuted,” Saraki said in a statement posted on Facebook on Sunday.
The statement was signed by his Special Assistant on New Media, Bamikole Omishore.
