JUST IN: Police Arraigns Senator Adeleke For Exam Malpractices In Abuja

The Nigerian Police on Wednesday, arraigned Senator Ademola Adeleke, and four others, on charges of examination malpractices at a Federal High Court in Abuja.

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in the September 22, 2018 election in Osun state, Senator Ademola Adeleke, was this Wednesday morning, arraigned before Justice I. E. Ekwo of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.

The lawmaker and four others were docked based on a four-count charge of examination malpractices filed against them by the Nigerian Police.

The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, through the Prosecuting Counsel, Simon Lough, had on September 19, 2018 filed the charge against Adeleke and his four co-accused.

Charged by the Police alongside Adeleke were Sikiru Adeleke, the Principal of Ojo-Aro Community Grammar School; Alhaji Aregbesola Muftau, the Registrar of the School; Gbadamosi Ojo and a teacher in the school, Dare Samuel Olutope.

The police accused the five defendants of committing examination malpractices by fraudulently, through impersonation, registering Adeleke and another Sikiru Adeleke, as students of Ojo-Aro Community Grammar School, in Ojo-Aro in Osun State, for the National Examination Council’s June/July 2017 Senior School Certificate Examination in February 2017.

At Wednesday’s sitting, the defendants all pleaded not guilty to the charges levelled against them, and alleged political withchunt.

Adeleke was however granted bail on self-recognizance by Justice I.E Ekwo.

He was ordered to deposit his international passport with the registrar. He was also asked to sign a bond stating that he will always be present at his trial.
