The application was not opposed by the defence. Ekwo adjourned the matter until April 2, 3 and 4 for accelerated hearing. Earlier, Moshood who told the court that he had been a teacher for 35 years, identified Sikiru Adeleke who was in the dock as one of the candidates who sat for the for the National Examination Council’s June/July 2017 Senior School Certificate Examination.
