The Federal Government has arraigned the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2023 governorship election in Ogun State, Ladi Adebutu, and nine others before the State High Court in Abeokuta for alleged vote buying.

The federal government had filed charges against Mr. Adebutu and the other defendants at the court.

He was finally charged in absentia yesterday, Monday July 11th  as he has been out of the country since shortly after the 18 March poll.

Adebutu did not honour police invitation of allegations of electoral malpractices and money laundering over which he has been arraigned.

The allegations were raised in a petition by the All Progressives Congress, in the state against Mr Adebutu and his party, the PDP to the Inspector General of Police on the day of the 18 March election.
