PDP: Arrest of Senator Adeleke, Invitation to Anarchy, Recipe for Crisis

The Peoples Democratic Party has declared its dissatisfaction and totally condemn the arrest of Senator Ademola Adeleke by the Nigeria Police Force.

According to the People\'s Democratic Party, Senator Adeleke honoured Police invitation and ended up being arrested and detained. The opposition party release a statement to address this development which it described as a war against the law and the upliftment of injustice.

People\'s Democratic Party’S PRESS STATEMENT

Red Alerts: The PDP informs the nation that the Police today Mon. May 6, 2019, arrested & detained our victorious candidate in the Osun Governorship election, Sen. Ademola Adeleke, in total disregard for the extant order of the Federal High Court.

This is highly provocative, an invitation to anarchy and recipe for a very serious crisis not only in Osun but also in the judiciary and our polity as a nation.

The arrest and detention of Senator Adeleke @IsiakaAdeleke1 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 @OfficialAll Progressive CongressNg to coerce Senator Adeleke to relinquish the mandate that was freely given to him by the people of Osun state, which was further established by the election petition tribunal.

The plot is to drag Senator Adeleke before an ostensibly compromised magistrate court, over the same issues of alleged forged school testimonial that is already before the Federal High Court, with a view to using such corridor to secure a stampeded trial and hurried conviction, and put him out of circulation, over trump-up charges.

The heinous calculation by the @OfficialAll Progressive CongressNg is to ensure that Senator Adeleke is not free to be sworn in as governor of Osun state as they know he will surely obtain justice and retrieve his stolen mandate at the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court.

The @PoliceNG 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 @OfficialPDPNig holds that any arraignment of Senator Adeleke in a magistrate court, for a matter that is already being heard by the Federal High Court, 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 @OfficialPDPNig therefore demands forthwith, the immediate and unconditional release of Senator Adeleke by the @PoliceNG
