The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2018 Osun governorship election, Senator Ademola Adeleke (Osun West), and four others have been charged to court for alleged examination malpractices.
Adeleke was charged with Sikiru Adeleke, Alhaji Aregbesola Mufutau (Principal of the school), Gbadamosi Thomas Ojo (school Registrar) and Dare Samuel Olutope (teacher).
This was contained in a charge sheet marked: FHC/ABJ/CR/156/2018.
They are to appear before Justice I. E. Ekwo.of the Federal High Court, Abuja, on October 31.
Adeleke and others were accused in a four-count charge filed in the name of the Inspector General of Police (IGP) of fraudulently, through personation, registering as students of Ojo-Aro Community Grammar School, Ojo-Aro Osun State to enable them to sit for the National Examination Council (NECO) examination of June/July 2017.
It will be recalled that threedays to the governorship election in Osun State, the police summoned Adeleke but were stopped on the orders of President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a statement, the Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, said the PDP governorship candidate and Sikiru, his brother, sat for the National Examinations Council Examination (NECO) as internal candidates in 2017, “impersonating” students of Ojo/Aro Community Grammar School in Osun State.
Moshood said the alleged crime was facilitated by the principal of the school, and two other members of staff who are under investigation and being charged to court.
The force asked the senator and the four others allegedly involved to report to the force headquarters in Abuja for “immediate” arraignment in court.
Moshood said charges of examination malpractice, criminal conspiracy, impersonation and breach of duty had been filed against the five at the Federal High Court in Abuja.
