Senator Ademola Adeleke, uncle of Nigerian Superstar, Davido has been arrested. The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) alleges that there is a plot to poison the lawmaker in detention.
The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiya said at a press conference Monday night. He said that the arrest was to frustrate him. Also to frustrate the lawmaker into discontinuing his case against the ruling party APC.
PDP also alleges that the plot was to drag the Senator before an “ostensibly compromised” magistrate court. The party, further alleges, the case will be over the same issues of alleged forged school testimonial that has already been brought before the Federal High Court.
The party also alleges that, another plot was to secure trail and hurridly convict him. So as to put him out of circulation and trump-up charges.
PDP further demand his unconditional release.
The press statement reads;
“The police arrested Senator Ademola on the guise of an invitation despite the direct orders of the Federal High Court. Restraining it or its agents from arresting and detaining him on account of statement of result and testimonial duly issued by the Ede Muslim Grammar School, Ede. Pending the determination of the originating summons pending in the court.”
“Senator Adeleke, as a law-abiding citizen, honoured an invitation by the police only for him to be arrested and detained in a dingy facility in Maitama, in direct affront to the order of the Federal High Court.
“The PDP holds that any arraignment of Senator Adeleke in a magistrate court. For a matter that is already being heard by the Federal High Court. Which is a calculated plot to cause crisis in the judicial system; enmesh the matter in unnecessary controversy as a pathway to truncate the course of justice in his matter.”
“The arrest 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 (APC) to coerce Senator Adeleke to relinquish the mandate that was freely given to him by the people of Osun state. Which was established by the election petition tribunal.”
