The house asked Ibrahim Idris, inspector-general of police, to arrest and prosecute the presidential aide for allegedly being in possession of a fake West African Examination Council (WAEC) result.

The house also recommended the withdrawal of his law degree and law school certificate obtained with the result.

The lawmakers made the recommendation on Thursday while adopting the report of its committee that investigated the special presidential investigative panel for the recovery of public property (SPIP), which is headed by Obono-Obla.
