The suit filed against Sen. Ademola Adeleke of opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for alleged examination malpractice has been struck out.
The Federal High Court in Abuja struck out the case on May 29, 2020 when the prosecution counsel, Mr. Simon Lough, withdrawal the charges.
In the ruling, Justice Inyang Eekwo, discharged Adeleke in view of Mr Lough’s (the prosecutor) decision to withdraw the charges against him.
Adeleke was the former governorship candidate of the PDP in the last Osun State governorship election.
He was arraigned before the Federal High Court in Abuja in October 2018 alongside Sikiru Adeleke (who is said to be the Senator’s relative), Aregbesola Mufutau (the school principal), Gbadamosi Thomas Ojo (Registrar) and Dare Samuel Olutope (a teacher).
Adeleke and Sikiru were accused of impersonation, both registering as students of Ojo-Aro Community Grammar school, Ojo-Aro, Osun state to enable them to sit for the National Examinations Council (NECO) examination of June/July 2017 while the other defendants were accused of aiding the commission in the alleged offence.
