On Friday 7 July, the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) arraigned Professor Anthony Elujoba on a 7 count charge bothering on financial misconduct. This was done by a high court sitting in Ede town, Osun State which was presided over by Justice David Oladimeji who ordered that the former acting VC of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Professor Elujoba, would be standing trial for alleged financial irregularity and be remanded at the Ilesa prison pending the ruling on his bail application. The counsel to the defendants, Ibrahim Lawal had filed an application for bail but was opposed by the EFCC counsel, Festus Ojo. Justice Oladimeji adjourned ruling on the application till July 18, 2017 after he had listened to the argument from both parties. Simultaneously, the premises of the Osun state high court where the former acting VC was standing trial for alleged financial misconduct was in chaos this morning, as workers and students of the institution who were in court for concurrence broke down in despair after Justice David Oladimeji ordered Prof. Elujoba to be kept in the Ilesha prison, pending ruling on his bail application. Angry, the staff and students, surrounded the court premises attacking anyone whom they suspected to be in tune with the EFCC action against the former VC. This went on for several hours as the protesters took over the court premises chanting anti-judicial and pro-Elujoba songs.Photo Credit: Getty
