Police Summon Ademola Adeleke Over ‘Exam Malpractice’
The Nigerian Police Force have summoned Ademola Adeleke, a candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Osun state governorship election, for alleged examination malpractice and criminal conspiracy.
A statement issued today by the police spokesperson, Jimoh Moshood, revealed that Adeleke and Sikiru, his brother, sat for the National Examination Council Examination (NECO) as internal candidates in 2017, “impersonating” students of OJO/Aro Community Grammar School in Osun state.
Moshood explained further that both Senator Adeleke and his brother’s pictures were captured in the school’s photo book of 2017 but no NECO seal was found on their photos, unlike the rest of the students.
In the statement, the police 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 have been filed against the five at the federal high court in Abuja.
