The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has alerted the nation of an alleged threat to the life of its governorship candidate in the 2018 Osun state election, Senator Ademola Adeleke. 

This is even as the party fingered the ruling party for allegedly masterminding a plot to frustrate Adeleke in his bid to seek redress in court following the victory earlier secured at the tribunal a few weeks ago. 

Addressing a press conference yesterday in Abuja, National Publicity Secretary of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, said the PDP has uncovered moves aimed at silencing the dance-loving Adeleke.

“It may interest you to know that certain desperate elements of the All Progressives Congress, APC, who are unsettled that they cannot stop Senator Adeleke from retrieving his governorship mandate freely given to him by the people of Osun state, are now viciously plotting to use all means to put him out of circulation.

“Given the series of unrelenting attacks, threats and the desperation now being exhibited by the APC, our party has become apprehensive that there are plots to silence Senator Adeleke as a way to terminate his efforts to retrieve his governorship mandate in the court.

“Part of the plot is to frame and arrest the Principal of his school, Ede Muslim High School, Ede, Mr Kadili Adejare Abass, on trump-up charges that Senator Adeleke’s School testimonial was forged with the aim of using such fabrication as a basis to smear and clamp down on Senator Adeleke.

“Nigerians will recall that the PDP had earlier alerted the public that having failed in their project to brand Senator Adeleke’s West African Examination Council, WAEC Certificate as fake, APC leaders, particularly those operating from Lagos were weaving a new fabrication that Senator Adeleke’s School Testimonial was ‘forged,” the publicity scribe said on behalf of his party.

According to him, “a former commissioner in Osun state was used by the APC leaders to reach and compromise certain top police officers to use the fabrications to arrest and embarrass Senator Adeleke and the Principal of his School, Ede Muslim High School even when they have not committed any crime.

“Yesterday (Wednesday), the Nigerian police in collaboration with the APC arrested Mr Abass, the Principal of the Ede Muslim High School, Ede as well as the wife of the school’s Registrar, Mrs Rofiyat Oladepo and her nine months old baby.

“Information available to the PDP shows that AIG Adeleye Oyebade of Zone II, Oshogbo, ordered the arrest of the innocent Principal of the school and the Registrar.

“When the Registrar, Mr Kabir Oladipo could not be reached as he is undergoing treatment for legs and arms injuries he sustained in a motor accident, AIG Oyebade allegedly ordered one ASP Faliyu to arrest the wife, Mrs Rofiyatu Oladepo, with her 9 months old baby. Both the innocent mother and her baby were dumped at the Zone II Police headquarters, Osogbo.”
