The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested a member of the House of Representatives (Oron Constituency, Akwa Ibom State), Nse Bassey Ekpenyong, over his alleged involvement in a certificate forgery scam.

An NGO had petitioned the EFCC, alleging that Ezeani committed perjury and financial crimes by submitting a forged Ordinary National Diploma/ Statement of Result of the Abia State Polytechnic to INEC in the build-up to the 2015 National Assembly election.

An EFCC source stated that: “The petitioner also alleged that Ekpenyong fraudulently obtained salaries, allowances and other financial benefits from his contrived certificate.

 “Investigations by the EFCC showed that Ekpenyong did not attend the Polytechnic as alleged by the petitioner and the Ordinary National Diploma did not emanate from the institution.

“Ekpenyong has been released on bail while we are continuing investigations”.
