Again, Pastor Umo Eno’s legal team was literary dazed and confused, when the lead counsel to the Plaintiff, Mr. Okey Ameachi ( SAN) asked Pastor Umo Eno in Court at the resumed hearing of the certificate forgery case on Monday between Mr. Akan Okon vs Umo Eno, in number FHC/UY/CS/110/2022 holden at the Federal High court Uyo, at Uyo Judicial Division to produce his original WAEC certificate.

Mr. Ameachi (SAN) had reminded the court that in the Amendment writ to the original summon filed on the 29th of August 2022, he was very clear in his statement that Pastor Umo Eno should produce his original result.

While the lead counsel to Mr. Akan Okon was putting the question for the presentation of the original result, Paul Usoro( SAN) approached the lead counsel of the Mr. Okon’s legal team to step down the request for the citing of the original result.

The judge, Justice Agatha reminded Umo Eno legal team that they were given seven days to respond, including the presentation of Umo Eno’s original certificate.

Mr. Usoro (SAN) in his response told the court that they will produce the original result in the next sitting being, Tuesday 13th September 2022.


The Forensic Expert Chief Reginal Udunze, who was subpoenaed by the Court gave his expert analysis and during cross-examination, in his testimony, confirmed that Pastor Umo Eno forged his 1981 and 1983 GCE results.

The lead counsel to Umo Eno, Usoro Usoro, SAN in his cross-examination and in a fruitless display of legal gymnastics, made a spirited effort to confuse the witness with irrelevant questions to no avail.

The Forensic expert Chief Reginald Udenze while responding to questions said he was not brought to the court to narrate the history of the establishment of WAEC or his familiarity with who heads the examining body or his relationship with the past chairman of the council and registrar.

Chief Udunze a retired Senior police and an expert in Forensic analysis, said he was hired to do a forensic analysis of the signature of the Umo Eno certificate and other certificates obtained in 1981, thus all that he needed to do was work with the documents he was provided (one which Eno presented to INEC and the PDP) for the analysis.

In addition, he said his duty did not require him to go and knock at the door of Umo Eno requesting his certificate but to use the same photocopies Eno handed out to INEC and PDP for his analysis.

And when the question was put to the expert whether he had approached WAEC to confirm if they produced the document, he responded that he never did as he only needed to use the material available to do the analysis and the material was enough to provide the needed answers.

On the use of Usanga’s certificate by the expert for comparison, since Chief Udunze was engaged by the plaintiff, he said it was the duty of the plaintiff to give him results to compare with.

He does does not need to meet Mr. Usanga in person before he can analyze his certificate because it is unnecessary. What was needed was a copy of Usanga’s certificate and not a copy of Usanga’s face.

The cross-examination by the lead counsel of the defendants did not invalidate the report.

The ongoing trial according to the lawyer is about truth and lies, light and darkness, and truth no matter how hard they try to suppress can never be hidden forever
