By Henry Umoru

THE police have invited  a  two- term member of the House of Representatives, Honourable Patrick  Asadu, over alleged  forgery of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,  primary election result sheet.

According to the warrant of arrest issued by the  police in Enugu, Asadu, who represents Nsukka/Igboeze South Federal Constituency in the House, was alleged to have forged the PDP result sheet for the primary conducted by the party to elect its candidate  in December 2014.

The warrant of arrest would enable the lawmaker appear and convince a judge of the Federal High Court that he was the rightful winner of the PDP primary.

The action of the police was in response to  the allegation levelled  against Asadu by   Dr. Ikechukwu Ugwuegede  that he forged the House of Representatives primary election result and altered same.

According to documents made available to journalists in Abuja yesterday, two different primary election result sheets  bearing the same serial number, but returning different persons as the winner were showed.
