Senator Ademola Adeleke loses as court of appeal declare Oyetola winner

Senator Ademola Adeleke has lost in court to Oyetola after a Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja nullified the ruling on the Osun State Governorship Election Tribunal which favored Senator Adeleke.

Some weeks ago, the Tribunal which sats in Abuja nullified the victory of Governor Gboyega Oyetola at the elections and declared Senator Ademola Adeleke as the winner.

However, Governor Gboyega Oyetola disagree and head for the Court of Appeal which today nullified the ruling by the tribunal.

The judgment which was delivered by Justice Hannatu Sankey set aside the entire proceedings of the Tribunal because of its “faulty composition”.

The judgment was upheld by four justices of the five-man panel.

Few days before now, Senator Adeleke was arrested by men of the Nigeria Police Force and taken into custody on the evening of Monday, May 6, 2019.

The spokesman of the Police, Frank Mba said:

‘Senator Adeleke is currently in police custody. He was taken into custody in the evening of today 6th May 2019 in connection with ongoing criminal investigations touching on his person.

Meanwhile, in the best tradition of natural justice and fair hearing, he has already been served with the relevant charge sheet containing his alleged offences in the presence of his Attorneys. He will be arraigned in a competent court of law tomorrow, 7th May 2019.”

Senator Ademola Adeleke was later released on bail.
