The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has protested the arrest and detention of its candidate at the Osun State governorship election, Senator Ademola Adeleke, yesterday by the Police, saying that it was in total disregard of the extant order of the Federal High Court.

PDP while raising the alarm of a plot to poison the senator, said he was detained at the Maitama police station after he obeyed their invitation.

The national publicity secretary of PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, who stated this at a press conference in Abuja demanded the senator’s immediate and unconditional release, stressing that the arrest was in disregard of a judgement by a High Court in Osun State which ordered the police not to arrest him when he obeys their invitation.

Describing the detention as highly provocative and an invitation to anarchy, the PDP spokesman noted that the treatment meted to Sen Adeleke is a direct act of violence against the laws, the institution of the judiciary and the 1999 Constitution (as amended).

He added that the plot is part of the grand plot by the All Progressives Congress (APC) 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.

Ologbondiyan said, “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 APC 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 police 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.

Meanwhile, Justice Inyang Ekwo of a Federal High Court in Abuja earlier ordered Adeleke to honour a fresh police invitation, yesterday.

This was after the judge had granted him permission to travel to the United States of America for medical check-up. In his ruling on the request of Adeleke to travel abroad for medical treatment, the court directed the Police not to prevent the senator from embarking on his scheduled trip on May 7 as he honoured the invitation on May 6.

The court also ordered the chief registrar of the court to release his passport to him.
