Rosulu Oluronke, a mother of four and a staff of the Lagos State Judiciary, where she had put in no less that thirty four years, spent her 2015 Christmas in prison. And she is still there. And, infact will still be there for the next ten years, courtesy of the judgement of a Lagos State High Court, per Hon. Justice Lawal Akapo who convicted her of conspiracy to commit obtaining money (three hundred thousand U.S. dollars) except where the said judgement is successfully quashed at Appeal.

The learned trial judge, just four days to Christmas Day last year sent Ronke to the gallows having found her enmeshed in a web of deceit involving Fred Ajudua (a lawyer and businessman made famously infamous over the years with unproven serial allegations of stupendous scams) to the end of obtaining money from Major General Ishaya Bamaiyi while both men were in detention for various reasons at the Maximum Security Prison, Kirikiri Lagos in 2004.


However Ronke Rosulu has not resigned to fate, still strongly affirming her innocence despite her conviction which has so ingloriously terminated her career, has appealed against Justice Akapo’s judgement which rocked the workers’ cadre of the Lagos State Judiciary. A date for the hearing f the Appeal has not been fixed.
