Adeleke, Brother Face Fresh Exam Malpractice, Impersonation Charges

The Nigeria Police Force has filed charges of examination malpractices, impersonation and criminal conspiracy against the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the coming Saturday’s election in Osun state, Senator Ademola Adeleke, and his brother, Sikiru.

The charge is coming few hours after news of confirmation of Senator Adeleke’s certificate by WAEC emerged.

According to report, the police filed the charges against the brothers at the Federal High Court in Abuja.

In an interview with newsmen, the force spokesperson, Jimoh Moshood, said that investigations revealed that duo registered and sat for the National Examination Council Examination (NECO) 2017 as internal candidates, impersonating students of the school at the ages of 57 and 42 years respectively.

It added that Senator Adeleke had made a cautionary statement and admitted that he registered for the 2017 NECO examinations as an internal student in the said school but did not sit for the examination.

Moshood explained further that both 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.

The police also said that the School Principal of Ojo-Aro Community High School, Egbedore Local Government Area, Osun State, and three others would equally be charged for abetting the crime, Channels TV reported.
