Osun Court Orders Rerraignment of Action Alliance National Chairman

An Osun State Magistrate court sitting in Osogbo, the Osun state capital has ordered a former National Chairman of the Action Alliance (AA), Mr Kenneth Udeze to be rearraigned before it on December 1st, 2020.

Mr Udeze and three other members of the AA are facing trial over alleged forgery, conspiracy and fraud.

Others who appeared before Magistrate Adebola Ajanaku who presided over the court were Adepoju Adetunji, Olufemi Olanibi and Ogunmodede Adeloye.

The former National Chairman of the Alliance Action had earlier been remanded in prison custody after he was arraigned before the court.

Mr Udeze who was recently sacked by the leadership of the AA, was arrested by operatives of Zone 11 of the Nigerian Police Force, with headquarters in Osogbo.

The former AA National Chairman was alleged to have replaced the name of the duly elected governorship candidate of the party in Osun State with another person during the 2018 governorship election in the state.

Appearing before the court, the politician and other defendants were told to perfect their bail, as the court granted them bail in the sum of ₦500,000.00 and two sureties not below Grade Level 10 in the state civil service.

Counsel to the defendants, Mr M.O Olaniyan had urged the court to grant his clients bail in the most liberal term and this was not opposed by the counsel to the complainant, Mr K.A Salawu.

After granting the accused bail, the Magistrate, Mrs Ajanaku adjourned the case to December 1st 2020 for rearraignment and hearing.
