Embattled Justice Adeniyi Ademola allegedly got N500,000 from President Muhammadu Buhari during a lawsuit on his certificate controversy.
According to PREMIUM TIMES,
Some persons had filed a suit challenging Mr. Buhari’s candidacy prior to the 2015 elections, alleging the president had no secondary school certificate as required by law.
A witness in court said the money was given through Mr. Buhari’s former lawyer, Kola Awodeyin. The witness, however, said he does not consider the money a bribe.
Justice Ademola alongside his wife, Olubowale, and a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Joe Agi are currently being prosecuted by the Nigerian government for alleged corruption.
However, government charges are more like persecution because of Justice Ademola refusal to dance to the tune of Buhari’s wish to continue to incarcerate Dasuki, Kanu Nnamdi, Zakzaky and others, which the Buhari government continue to violate laws by still keeping them in detention against court ruling.
