Court Cleared Justice Adeniyi Ademola & Wife Corruption Charges


The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has cleared Justice Adeniyi Ademola and his wife, Olabowale, of charges of corruption brought against it from the office of the Attorney General of the Federation.

The presiding Judge, Justice Jude Okeke, on Wednesday dismissed all 18 counts, including gratification charges against Ademola, his wife Olubowale, and a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Joe Agi.

In his ruling on the no-case submissions filed by the three defendants, the trial judge held that the prosecution has failed to establish any prima facie case against the defendants and therefore “no justifiable reason to call on the defendants to enter their defence.”

“The matter is therefore resolved in favour of the defendants and all the defendants are hereby discharged”, Justice Okeke ruled.

The embattled Ademola was among the judges arrested last October in a late night raid by the State Security Service.

The Office of the Attorney General of the Federation, had in 2016 filed the charges against the accused persons following the raid by the premier State Service operatives on the judge’s house on October 7, 2016.

He was eventually charged by the attorney general’s office for, among others, allegedly receiving bribes during the discharge of is duties.
