Abuja High Court Dismisses Charges Against Justice Ademola & His Wife

An FCT High Court has dismissed the 18-count charge filed by the Department of State Services (DSS), against Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High Court, Abuja.

Reading the judgement, Justice Jude Okeke said the defendants have no case to answer on the charges bordering on corruption and possession of firearms.

According to Justice Okeke, some of the charges do not meet constitutional standards and, in his words, no court can base its judgement on speculation.

The court, therefore, discharged Justice Ademola and the other defendants in the case, including his wife, Olabode.

Among other allegations before the Court, the DSS had accused Justice Ademola of receiving 30 million Naira from a senior lawyer, through a Guarantee Trust bank account operated by his wife, who was the former Head of Service in Lagos state.
