Senator Ademola Adeleke

The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), in the last gubernatorial  election in Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke, and four others, were on Wednesday arraigned before the Federal High Court in Abuja.

ROYAL NEWS gathered that the lawmaker along others are to answer charges on examination malpractices.

The defendants were arraigned before Justice I.E Ekwo of the Federal High Court in Abuja where they all pleaded not guilty to the four counts preferred against them.

The rest of the defendants alongside whom Adeleke was arraigned  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 prosecution accused the five defendants of committing the offence of 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.

Shortly after the defendants took their pleas, on Wednesday, three of them, including Adeleke, who had filed their separate bail applications ahead of the arraignment, were granted bail.
