UPDATE: Justice Ademola, wife, in the dock over N248m corruption charge

The federal government on Tuesday arraigned Adeniyi Ademola, a serving judge, and his wife, Olubowale, before an Abuja high court.

Ademola and his wife, who is the Lagos state head of service, were brought before Jude Okeke on a 15-count charge of corruption to the tune of N248m.

Both accused persons were in the dock as proceedings started.

The Ademolas are also alleged to have received $520, 000 as gratification from some law firms between 2013 and 2016.

Ademola is one of the seven judges who were arrested on October 8 by the Department of State Services (DSS) on allegations of corruption.

Sylvester Ngwuta, a supreme court judge, who was also arrested, was arraigned before a federal high court in November.

The government has lined up at least four witnesses that will testify against the Ademolas?.
