August 28, 2013 – Governor Suntai’s Forged Resumption Letter: Falana Petition IGP Abubakar Over Taraba State Administration
Senior Advocate of Nigeria and human right activist, Femi Falana has sent a detailed letter to Nigeria’s IGP to commence a detail investigation of the forged letter purportedly endorsed by 7 Taraba’s legislators over the immediate resumption of the brain-injured governor.
The forged letter was sent to Taraba House of Assembly on Monday indicating Governor Suntai‘s readiness to resume office.
As we are all aware that the governor returned to Nigeria from the US on Sunday after 10 months of intensive brain injury treatment.
Witness claims, the governor appeared unlike his old self upon arrival.
In his petition to Police IGP, Femi Falana noted that barely one day after his return, a letter was delivered to the House declaring the governor’s fitness and readiness for work without affording the public a copy of his medical report of mental and physical fitness.
“We therefore urge you in the interest of the people of Taraba State and Nigeria as a whole to use your good offices to cause a detailed investigation to confirm the authenticity of the letter of intention sent by the Governor to the House of Assembly as there are several allegations within and outside Taraba State that the letter of intention may have been forged by the governor’s handlers,” the letter said.
Femi Falana claims he will fulfill his constitutional duty if the IGP doesn’t accede to his demand within 3 days.
