Ademola Adeleke, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship candidate in the recent Osun election has just been arraigned for impersonation.
Before the Federal High Court in Abuja, Adeleke was arraigned on a four-count charge for alleged examination malpractice.
He was arraigned by the police for presenting himself as a student of Ojo-aron community grammar school in his state in 2017.
He has denied the allegation and alleged political witchhunt.
He was brought to court with four other accused, including the school principal by the Nigerian police on Wednesday, October 31, 2018.
Mr Adeleke was however granted bail on self-recognizance by Justice I E, Ekwo.
The court ordered him to deposit his international passport with the registrar.
Mr Adeleke was also asked to sign a bond stating that he will always be present at his trial.
