DEJI ADELEKE'S DIVORCE: JUDGE ORDERS JOURNALISTS OUT OF COURT!




A judge in Osun State Judiciary, Justice A. O. Oguntade, sitting at the State High Court, Ede, again on Thursday ordered out journalists covering the divorce case between a multi millionaire businessman, Deji Adeleke, and his estranged wife, Peju from the court.

Oguntade had on Monday November 16th prevented journalists who were present in the court by chasing them out of the court room.

The judge again on Thursday asked journalists present in the courtroom to go out before the proceeding started.

On entering the court, Oguntade said, “Journalists present in this court should go out. I repeat, journalists present in this court should go out now before…”

The judge asked his police orderly to escort the journalists out and the orderly handed down the order to the a senior police officer, Adeoye Yekinin, who led a team of armed policemen deployed in the court purposely for the divorce case.

The police officer, however was polite in carrying out the eviction order as he pleaded with the two journalists including our correspondent to vacate the premises.

The armed policemen waited patiently for the journalists to leave the premises before they returned to the entrance of the court.

Some of those present in court expressed surprise about the heavy presence of armed policemen.
One of the lawyers in the court for another matter said one of the parties involved in the case did not want publicity for the case.

Counsel for the enstanged wife, Mr. Kemi Pinheiro (SAN) , had during the proceeding on Monday accused the judge of bias.

Despite the allegation, Oguntade ordered journalists out of the court and instructed his orderly to ensure they were chased out of the the premises.
