The Peoples Democratic Party has called for the immediate and unconditional release of its Governorship Candidate in Osun, Senator Ademola Adeleke, arrested by the police in Abuja.
The Party National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, made the call at a press conference in Abuja.
Ologbondiyan, condemned the arrest, describing it as unconstitutional, provocative and part of the plot by the All Progressives Congress, (APC), to stall his tribunal case.
He described the arrest as total disregard for the extant order of the Osun State High Court, Ikirun, restraining the police or its agents from arresting and detaining him.
The Party National Publicity Secretary said that, the court restrained the police from arresting Adeleke on account of statement of result and testimonial duly issued by Ede Muslim Grammar School, Ede, pending the determination of the originating summons in the court.
He said that the police, however, arrested Adeleke, representing Osun West Senatorial District, on the guise of an invitation despite the direct orders of the state court.
