The arraignment of suspended Federal High Court justice, Adeniyi Ademola and his wife Olubowale, the Head of Service of Lagos State over charges bordering on gratification has been stalled.

The Ademolas were scheduled for arraignment today before Justice Jude Okeke of an FCT High Court sitting in Maitama, Abuja over a 15 count charge accusing them of “corruptly” receiving a total sum of N248,101,300 and $520,000 as gratifications from law firms and others between 2013 and 2016.

However, prosecution counsel has informed the court that the court's bailiff's attempt to serve the charge on the defendants has been unsuccessful. The Ademolas are reported to have travelled to Lagos, making the service on them personally to be impossible.

Their counsel in the matter, J.C. Ujidoye has however expressed willingness to accept the charges on their behalf subject to the order of the court.
