Alleged Exam Malpractices: Court discharges ‘dancing Senator’ Ademola Adeleke

A Federal High Court in Abuja has ruled in favour of former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke in the alleged examination malpractices trial involving him and four others.

The ex-Senator is the younger brother of late Isiake Adeleke, first civilian Governor of Osun State.

Justice Inyang Ekwo, in a ruling on Friday, said he was minded to discharge Adeleke in view of the prosecution’s decision to withdraw charges against him.

‎Justice Ekwo elected to continue with the trial of the other four co-defendants in the case, who were re-arraigned on Thursday on a seven-count amended charge filed in the name of the Inspector General of Police (IGP).
