Arabambi alleged that Abure forged the court's seal in an affidavit he submitted to change the names of some candidates already submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), and they confirmed that after they verified the seal at the high court.

His statement reads in part:

"Obasanjo knew all of them. Baba Adebanjo, all of them knew. I have to say the truth here now. In fact, it's part of why Obasanjo beat me in his house because I told them that a forger would not lead us to the party, but he said we should allow Obi to win first. We said no; we will not allow him to win."
