Justice Ademola, wife's arraignment stalled

05 December 2016, 14:31

Abuja - The arraignment of suspended Federal High Court justice, Adeniyi Ademola and his wife Olubowale, the Head of Service of Lagos State over charges bordering on gratification has been stalled, Daily Trust reports.

The Ademolas were scheduled for arraignment today before Justice Jude Okeke of an FCT High Court sitting in Maitama, Abuja over a 15 count charge accusing them of “corruptly” receiving a total sum of N248 101 300 and $520 000 as gratifications from law firms and others between 2013 and 2016.

However, prosecution counsel has informed the court that the court's bailiff attempt to serve the charge on the defendants has been unsuccessful. The Ademolas are reported to have travelled to Lagos,  making the service on them personally to be impossible.

Their counsel in the matter, J.C. Ujidoye has however expressed willingness to accept the charges on their behalf subject to the order of the court.

The Federal Government had filed gratification charges against Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High Court in Abuja, and his wife, Olabowale, who is the Head of Service of Lagos State according to News24.

The Office of the Attorney General of the Federation filed 15 count against the couple before the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory on Monday.
