The Nigerian police Wednesday summoned Sen. Ademola Adeleke, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the coming Saturday governorship election in Osun state for alleged examination malpractice and criminal conspiracy.
In a statement Wednesday, Jimoh Moshood, police spokesman, said 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.
The police said it was discovered that the alleged crime was facilitated by the principal of the school, and two other members of staff of the school for which they 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.
Meanwhile, charges of examination malpractice, criminal conspiracy, impersonation and breach of duty have been filed against the five of them at the federal high court Abuja.
