The chairman of the ad hoc committee, Aliyu Pategi, who laid the report before the House on Thursday, said the committee had indicted Mr. Obono-Obla for alleged forgery, arbitrariness and abuse of office.
Channels TV reports that the committee is also calling for the dissolution of the panel by the President and that the law degree of Mr. Obono-Obla be withdrawn on grounds of alleged forgery.
