A Federal High Court in Abuja has discharged former governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke in the alleged examination malpractices trial involving him and four others.
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).
Senator Adeleke’s nephew and popular Nigerian artiste David Adeleke commonly known as Davido has taken to his official Twitter account to react to the development.
He gave glory to God in acknowledgement of his believe in the Almighty’s involvement in his uncle’s case. Davido wrote; “To God be the glory @IsiakaAdeleke1″
