PDP alleges plan to arrest, detain Adeleke

The Peoples Democratic Party on Sunday raised the alarm over an alleged fresh plot by the All Progressives Congress to use some policemen to incarcerate its Osun State governorship candidate in the 2018 election, Ademola Adeleke.

It claimed that the plot was aimed at forcing Adeleke to relinquish his mandate.

The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, made the allegation in a statement made available to journalists in Abuja.

He said, “The PDP already has new information of how the APC, having seen that there is no way it can stop 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.

“Apart from executing this script of the APC, these elements in the police have no other reason for continuously hounding Senator Adeleke, as he is already in court for all the frivolous allegations preferred against him.

“If they truly want Senator Adeleke for any new issue connected with the charges for which he is already in court, they 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.”

Ologbondiyan warned that Nigerians would not accept any excuse, should  Adeleke become a victim of accidental discharge or sudden disappearance.

He said Nigerians knew who to hold responsible.

“The PDP therefore charges the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Adamu Mohammed, to rein in his men on issues related to Senator Adeleke’s determination to retrieve his governorship mandate, which was stolen by the APC,” he added.
