Davido's uncle, Adeleke re-arraigned by the Police Over Alleged Malpractices

The police yesterday re-arraigned the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate in the September 22, 2018 governorship election in Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke, and four others on examination malpractices charges.

The five defendants were initially arraigned before Justice I. E. Ekwo of the Federal High Court in Abuja on October 31, but an amendment to the charges thereafter necessitated the re-arraignment, which took place before the same judge on Tuesday.

 With the amendment, the police increased the number of charges from four to seven, which the four defendants again pleaded not guilty to on Tuesday.

Others with whom Adeleke was re-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, Osun State, for the National Examination Council’s June/July 2017 Senior School Certificate Examination in February 2017.

 In the additional counts, the police accused the defendants of fraudulently registering Ademola and Sikiru Adeleke for the examination “and pursuant to the abetment awarded them seven credits, one pass and five credits respectively, and thereby committed an offence contrary to section 10(a) and punishable under Section 3 of the Examination Malpractices Act Cap E15 LFN 2004.”

After the defendants took fresh pleas on Tuesday the judge re-affirmed the bail he earlier granted them.

Justice Ekwo fixed February 12 for trial.
