FG Files Fresh Suit Against Justice Ademola at CCT

By Dipo Olowookere

A fresh suit has been filed by the Federal Government against Justice Adeniyi Ademola and his wife, Mrs Olabowale Ademola.

This time, the government is filing the case through the Ministry of Justice at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).

The FG is accusing the couple of failing to declare their assets and living above their means.

This comes after the government could not nail Justice Ademola at a High Court sitting in Abuja.

Justice Jude Okeke of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory had on April 5, 2017, upheld a no case submission by the Defence in the corruption case against Justice Adeniyi Ademola, Mrs Olabowale Ademola and Mr Joe Agi (SAN).

The trial judge struck out the 18-count charge proffered against the defendants after holding that the prosecution failed to prove any of the allegations despite the provisions of sections 53 and 60 of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act (ICPC Act).

After the judgement, the government filed an appeal against the decision of Justice Okeke to throw out its suit.
