The Nigerian police, on Tuesday, re-arraigned the Osun State governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ademola Adeleke, on allegations of examination malpractice.
Adeleke, who was first arraigned on a four-count charge brought against him in September, for alleged conspiracy and impersonation among other offences, was re-arraigned on Tuesday, with the charges increased from four to seven-counts, still bordering on similar offences.
The police have accused him of conspiring to procure illegal examination results with workers at the Ojo-Aro community grammar school and arraigned him along with a principal and three others accused of conspiring to commit the alleged crime.
The police force also accused Adeleke, a serving senator, of making false documents, regarding his age and violating the exam malpractice act, CAP E15, 2004.
Meanwhile, Adeleke, who contested closely with his counterpart from the All Progressives Congress, (APC) Adegboyega Oyetola, is challenging the outcome of the election which saw Oyetola emerge winner.
He is accusing the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the APC of colluding to ensure the candidate of the APC emerges winner in the September elections in the state.
