Leave Ademola Adeleke alone, PDP Cautions as party allege fresh plot on Adeleke

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged a fresh plot by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to use some elements in the police to hound and incarcerate its candidate in the 2018 Osun State governorship election, Senator Ademola Adeleke, in the bid to browbeat him to relinquish his mandate.

The PDP claimed to have new information of how the APC, having seen that there is no way it can stop Senator Adeleke at the courts, now seeks to forcefully hound him into a police station, where he will be incarcerated and put out of circulation before the determination of the matters in court.

Adeleke and the PDP are challenging the victory of the APC candidate, Governor Gboyega Oyetola, in court.

A statement yesterday by the spokesman for the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, said apart from executing the alleged script,  some elements in the police have no other reason for continuously hounding Senator Adeleke, as he is already in court for the frivolous allegations preferred against him.

The statement said: “If they truly want Senator Adeleke for any new issue connected with the charges for which he is already in court, it should present such before the court instead of resorting to bullying.

“Nigerians will recall that the PDP had earlier alerted of threats to Senator Adeleke’s life. These threats have not only continued unabated but have heightened with this renewed hounding by these elements in the police, who are being used by the APC.

“Our party cautions that Nigerians are not ready to accept any excuse from anybody should Senator Adeleke suddenly becomes a victim of accidental discharge, sudden disappearance or failed health. They know whom to hold responsible.”
