A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has struck out a suit filed against Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki.
The plaintiffs, in the suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/553/2020, accused the governor of engaging in certificate forgery.
Listed as plaintiffs in the suit are Edobor Williams, Ugbesia Abudu Godwin and Amedu Dauda Anakhu.
They blamed Obaseki for manufacturing his Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) declaration in Classical Studies from the University of Ibadan.
The plaintiffs fought that the supposed testament fabrication repudiates Section 182(1)(i) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as corrected).
They implored the court to among others, hold that Obaseki is "not qualified to run or look for political decision to the workplace of the legislative head of Edo State" in the coming 2020 governorship political decision.
At the notice of the case on Monday, neither the offended parties nor their legal advisors were in court. The litigant also was not spoken to.
Following the development, Justice Anwuli Chiekere struck out the suit.
