NPF - Police Arrest & Detain Senator Adeleke Over "Certificate Forgery"


It seems arresting and harassing prominent opposition figures, is higher on the police and federal government's list than the major security issues in this country. The reasons given for the usual political arrests are very flimsy.

Earlier on it was EFCC opening or rather reopening cases against Saraki as he is about to leave office. Now it's Senator Adeleke's own case that is very obviously political. A case that has already been in court, why is police inviting him and detaining him again.

The police have detained Ademola Adeleke, lawmaker representing Osun west senatorial district. The senator was candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2018 governorship election in Osun state.

In a statement on Monday, the campaign organisation said Adeleke 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.”
