A Police Inspector, Ademola Adesida, has appeared before an Ado-Ekiti Chief Magistrate’s Court for allegedly divulging official secrets to unauthorized persons.

The prosecutor, Sergeant Samson Osobu, told the court that Adesida, 38, unlawfully and knowingly gave false information to public officers.

According to him, the accused person committed the offence on July 12 in Ado-Ekiti within the magisterial district.

He said the offences contravened Section 97 (1) of the Official Secret Law Cap 03 and Section 125 (A) of the Criminal Code Cap C16 Laws of Ekiti State 2012.

Osobu alleged that the defendant, being a serving police inspector, did publish and communicate with unauthorized persons, the information that came to him by virtue of his position.

He said that the accused ought to keep the information secret.

The defendant pleaded not guilty to the charge when it was read to his hearing.

His counsel, Mr. Oluwadare Oyedele, urged the court to grant him bail, with a promise that he would not jump bail.

The prosecutor, however, opposed the bail application; on the ground that the defendant was dismissed from the Nigeria Police and that he lived outside the jurisdiction of the court.

The Chief Magistrate, Mr Adesoji Adegboye, granted bail to the defendant in the sum of N100, 000 with one surety in like sum.

Adegboye adjourned the case till August 3 for hearing.
