Peace Corps: How Nneji forged my signature, overthrew me as Commandant General – Ogoegbunam‎ alleges

Founder of National Unity and Peace Corps, Prof. Humphrey Ogoegbunam, has alleged that Dr. Chinedu Nneji forged his signature at the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) and declared himself the Commandant General of the Corps.
This was even as he admitted that the bill passed by the National Assembly was purely that of Dickson Akoh’s Peace Corps of Nigeria, adding that talks were underway to absorb his men into Akoh’s group.
Ogoegbunam, who was addressing the Senate committee on Judiciary and Human Rights on Tuesday, said, Nneji only joined the Peace Corps in 2013 and there was no way he could have risen to the rank of Commandant General.
According to him, Nneji, who was barely 2 months in the formation, was called upon to assist a female officer in running the affairs of the Corps while he (Ogoegbunam) embarked on medical trip to oversea.
“When I came back, I saw his name as Commandant General, and I asked, how come? How would you have become the Commandant General just like that
“He went to the CAC, forged my signature and withdrew the constitution that was submitted. He removed my name as Chairman of BoT and wrote his name as Chairman. He also included 13 names as members of BoT”, Ogoegbunam alleged.
He said petition had already been submitted to the National Assembly and security agencies.
Ogoegbunam also alleged that Nneji had been threatening his life.
“Since I returned to Nigeria, over 2 years ago, he has refused to see me. I have not set my eyes on him untill today”, he disclosed to the Senate.
Prof. Ogoegbunam tendered evidences before the Senate and urged it to allow the establishment of Nigerian Peace Corps, which he said, would enable his organization which has been existing for 30 years, be co-opted into Dickson Akoh’s group.
When asked by the Senate if he would integrate the National Unity and Peace Corps into his group if it was eventually established, Akoh said the Corps was all about the Nigerian youths and that he would not object to it.
