PDP protests as police detain Adeleke

The Peoples Democratic Party has protested against the detention of its candidate for last year’s  Osun State governorship election, Ademola Adeleke, by the police on Monday.

Adeleke  was  detained at  Force Headquarters in Abuja  after he was invited by the  police

“This is highly provocative, an invitation to anarchy and a recipe for a very serious crisis not only in Osun but also in the judiciary and our nation,” the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Ologbindiyan, said at a press conference in Abuja on Monday.

“The arrest and detention of Senator Adeleke is a direct act of violence against our laws, the institution of the judiciary and the 1999 Constitution (as amended).


“This is part of the grand plot by the All Progressives Congress to coerce Senator Adeleke into relinquishing  the mandate that was freely given to him by the people of Osun State, which was further established by the tribunal.”

Ologbondiyan said the plot was to arraign  Adeleke before  “an ostensibly compromised magistrate’s court” over the same issues of alleged examination malpractice and certificate forgery before the Federal High Court, Abuja.
