Justice Adeniyi Ademola of a Federal High Court in Abuja and his wife, Olabowale, who is Head of Service of Lagos State civil service, were scheduled to be arraigned on Monday before a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Maitama, on charges of receiving gratification, but the arraignment could not proceed because of their absence.

The husband and wife were absent because they had not been served with the charges.

Trial judge, Justice Jude Okeke, adjourned the matter till December 13, 2016, after the their lawyer, Mr. Jeph Njikonye, volunteered to accept service on behalf of his clients.

Lead prosecuting counsel, Mr. Segun Jegede, had told the trial judge that court bailiffs attempted to serve the couple with the charges but they were said to have travelled to Lagos.

Justice Okeke, in his ruling, said record showed that a court bailiff attempted to serve the defendants in Abuja, on December 2, but were said to have travelled to Lagos.


The charges have thus been sent to the couple through their lawyer.
