According to experts who spoke to ITREALMS on anonymous, they faulted the explanation offered by the Coordinator of TPLT, Babatunde Ogala, SAN, saying that what actually appeared on the document is a 'header' used in identifying document from bulk of others in a database.

They also defined a 'header' as text that is placed at the top margin of a page or every page in a document, while a footer is placed at the bottom, or foot, of a page in that order.

"Typically these areas are used for inserting document information, such as the name of the document, the chapter heading, page numbers, creation date and the like," they revealed.

Experts equally faulted the claims by Ogala that "On collecting our own copy, we immediately scanned and water-marked with the inscription 'Tinubu Presidential Legal Team ‘TPLT’” before circulating the scanned soft copies to the lawyers in our team," saying that in first instance why put header on a document not originally from you, thus he may not be telling the whole truth.

Basically in Word processing, the forensic document experts said that 'header' is used to identify a given file from the bulk and if TPLT was to share document to their team as a scan copy as claimed by Ogala, why put header to it, which makes his argument watery.

In addition, they Word Processing experts informed ITREALMS that "If it were to be a scanned copy, there is what is called paper positioning or mark to show it was a scanned document, rather than the header is correctly placed given the Word Processing format of margin.

They posited that what TPLT have in the document is not 'watermarks' which is different from 'headers' as referenced by Ogala.

"Watermarks in Word Processing is usually inserted in the middle of the document for authentication and originality effect at the background," they said.

A watermark, therefore, they said, "is a light and faded image of text, picture, and logo that appears behind the main content of the document, which basically, is a lighter shade in the text, so that reader can read the document very easily.

They maintained that the purpose of any watermark "is to make it more difficult for the original image to be copied or used without permission."

As said by them, since Ogala is claiming the document came from Registrar, TPLT should not have put 'its watermarks' to such a document if it were not originating from them ab nitio.

"So, is either he does not know what is called watermarks or the difference between the headers and watermarks," they argued, stressing that if at all there is any need to explain, its not TPLT that should do that.

"The so-called clarification by Ogala and his TPLT, is not sustained," they posited, even as "It's the court that should explain in the first place, and not Tinubu lawyers."

Security-wise, they concluded that there is every reason to question the judgement and may not be far from the report by one Chike Ibezim, who purported that

ITREALMS gathered that prior to the delivery of the controversial judgment, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, SAN, had through Priory Terrace Solicitors and Nigeria Police commenced investigations of one Nnamdi Emmanuel Ibezim, into the complaint and discovered that the suspect made a false publication on his handle – @ReporteraNews on the social media platform ‘X’, formerly known as Twitter on Saturday 5th August, 2023, alleging that the complainant, Fashola, was involved in the drafting of a controversial verdict in the ongoing Presidential Election Petition Tribunal and that the military have been deployed to his residence to restrict movement thereby intending.

However, further investigations by the Police wit technical and tactical analysis into the phone number used for making the publication in question, it was discovered that the phone was registered to one Chike Ibezim and he was promptly, while Nnamdi Emmanuel Ibezim, and one Tope who it was alleged handles all social media correspondences are still at large and have not honoured all invitations by the Nigeria Police Force.
