Lawyer withdraws case against Buhari among death threats

30 June 2016, 14:12

Abuja - Nnamdi Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe, a lawyer who filed a suit against President Muhammadu Buhari seeking his disqualification due to a lack of education, has withdrawn his case among alleged threats to his life, Naij reports.

Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe filed the notice for discontinuation on June 27, not explaining his reason for removing the case.

Reports have indicated, however, that the case was discontinued due to indirect threats to Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe's life with the lawyer claiming that he fears for his family and friends.

The suit has originally been filed due to the lawyer arguing that Buhari is not educated enough to contest the office of the President due to Buhari allegedly not having completed the minimum academic qualification to do so, This Day reports.

The case also claimed that Buhari did not sit for the Cambridge West Africa School Certificate in 1961, refuting the President's previous claims.
