Nigerians will recall that the PDP had earlier alerted the public that having failed in their project to brand Senator Adeleke’s WAEC Certificate as fake, APC leaders, particularly those operating from Lagos were weaving a new fabrication that Senator Adeleke’s School Testimonial was “forged”.
…Demands Immediate Release of Adeleke’s School Principal
Gentlemen of the press, the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party
(PDP) invites you to alert the nation that the life of our victorious
Osun state governorship candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke is in danger.
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
Nigerians will recall that the PDP had earlier alerted the public that
having failed in their project to brand Senator Adeleke’s 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 PDP had also informed the public of how 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, April 24, 2019 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
The PDP has also been informed of how AIG Oyebade allegedly told those
who went to visit the detainees last night that they are continuing the
criminal aspect of the Civil action commenced by the APC, which is still
The PDP holds that it is most unfortunate that the Nigeria Police will
allow certain elements within its ranks to yield themselves as tools in
the hands of the oppressive APC in their desperation to thwart the
mandate of the people of Osun state, which they freely gave to Senator
It is clear that there is no way a school principal, who duly signed and
issued a school testimonial under his own hand and position, can be said
to have “forged” the same testimonial.
Moreso, the school register as well as the WAEC result and certificate
eminently show that Senator Adeleke attended the school, sat for WAEC
examination and obtained the certificate, which has been validated even
by a court of competent jurisdiction, thus also authenticating the
The PDP therefore calls on the Inspector General of Police, Adamu
Mohammed to call his men to order on issues related to Senator Adeleke’s
determination to retrieve his governorship mandate, which was stolen by
While the PDP further urges the IGP to order the immediate release of
the innocent School Principal, the wife of the school registrar and her
baby, our party counsel the APC and their allies to end their schemes
against Senator Adeleke, as they will all come to naught in the face of
justice and the will of the people Osun state.
The PDP therefore calls on Nigerians to hold the APC and their agents
responsible should Senator Adeleke becomes a victim of any harm or
The people of Osun state have elected Senator Adeleke as their governor
and should be allowed to move ahead with their choice of leadership.
