Alleged stealing: Court grants ex-OAU VC, bursar bail

An Osun State High Court has granted bail to an ex-acting Vice Chancellor of Obafemi Awolowo University, Prof. Anthony Elujoba and the bursar of the university, Mrs. Aderonke Akeredolu, who are standing trial for alleged stealing.

Justice David Oladimeji granted bail to the two accused persons in the ruling he delivered today.

Elujoba was granted bail on self-recognition while the bursar was granted bail in the sum of N50 million and two sureties.

It was gathered that there was wild jubilation at the court premises immediately the judge granted the bail as workers and students started chanting Elujoba.

Elujoba and Akeredolu are being prosecuted by the economic and financial crimes commission on seven counts of stealing among other charges.
