According to the spokesperson for the Commission, Mrs. Rasheedat Okoduwa, the suspect who is currently being detained by the Ibadan, Oyo State office of the Commission is undergoing interrogation after preliminary investigations carried out by operatives.

She said Mr. Olugbenga  was working with a fake PhD certificate purportedly from the University of Ibadan.

However, during interrogation he insisted in his statement that the certificate was genuine.

Further action in accordance with the laws will be taken at the conclusion of investigation, said the spokesperson.
