The police have detained Senator Ademola Adeleke, the lawmaker representing Osun west senatorial district.

This is not a good time for Ademola Adeleke who is still fighting Oyetola in court for the claim of the governorship seat in Osun.

According to the information received by NIGERIA NEWS, Nigerian police (local authorities) have arrested and detained the current senator for the issued of certificate forgery that has been won in the court of law.

He was the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2018 governorship election in Osun state.

The information was part of the statements by the Adeleke PDP camp on Monday in Osun, said the Senator had honoured an invitation at the force headquarters in Abuja before he was detained.

“We alert the public, diplomatic and democracy community worldwide that the Nigerian Police has arrested and detained Senator Ademola Adeleke on old trumped up charges of certificate and testimonial forgery,” the statement read.

“This is after the school principal and school authority have through affidavits denied any forgery and owned up to the school testimonial issued to Senator Adeleke.

“Senator Adeleke had this morning honoured police invitation at the force headquarters, Abuja. He arrived at the force headquarters at 9am and was not attended to until later this afternoon when he was informed of fresh charges of testimonial forgery. The distinguished Senator was taken to Maitama Police station with plan to arraign him tomorrow at an undisclosed Magistrate court.”

The statement said Adeleke is being victimised over his “pursuit of the retrieval of the governorship mandate freely conferred on him by the people of Osun state”.

The Senator had been declared duly elected by the election tribunal but Gboyega Oyetola, the incumbent governor, filed an appeal.

The appeal court has reserved judgement in the case.

Adeleke’s campaign organisation also accused the police of working for Oyetola and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

“Yet, the police in connivance with the appellants have decided to unjustly incarcerate and raised trumped up charges which have been clarified by relevant authorities,” the statement read.

“The principal of the secondary school attended by Senator Adeleke testified through affidavit before Bwari High Court that the school indeed issued the testimonial. WAEC equally testified that the Senator sat for the examination. For the Police to revive this old clarified issue confirms political vendetta.

“We call for urgent intervention of well meaning Nigerians to stop this emerging rape of democracy. The case for which the Police is acting is subjudice. It is sad to note that the Police appears to have become a tool in the hands of enemies of rule of law.”
