“And asides from that, they equally arraigned him that the result even the testimonials he presented when he was contesting were fake ones.”


He noted that Adeleke’s lawyer raised an objection to the competency of the court in hearing the case but the judge overruled the objection saying that he has the right to be arraigned before the court.

“He was formally arraigned, his plea was taken and he pleaded not guilty to all the counts as read against him.


“He was granted bail of two million naira and one surety in the like sum and the surety must be a resident in the jurisdiction of this honourable court.”


The judge adjourned the case to 24th of June 2019, for the purpose of prosecution presenting their witnesses for trial.
