Court discharge Justice Ademola and wife

Justice Jude Okeke of the Federal High court Abuja has dismissed the 18-counts gratification and illegitimate possession of firearms charges filed against Justice Adeniyi Ademola, his wife Olabowale and another lawyer Paul Agi by the Federal government|.

Justice Ademola was arraigned for allegedly collecting bribe from {legal professionals|legal representatives} and others while dispensing his duties as a judge.
His wife is proposed to have been used as a proxy to sometimes collect the bribe. In the resumed hearing of the case today, the trial judge, Justice Jude Okeke, held that the prosecution team had failed to establish any facie case against the defendants and therefore “no justifiable reason to call on the defendants to enter their defence.

“The matter is therefore resolved in favour of the defendants and all the defendants are hereby discharged”, Justice Okeke ruled.
