The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has alleged that there are threats to the life of its governorship candidate in Osun State, Ademola Adeleke.
National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan made this known in a press statement he issued on Thursday.
He asked the Inspector General of Police to call his men to order on issues concerning the Osun PDP guber candidate.
The PDP said “certain desperate elements of the All Progressives Congress (APC)” were “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,” he said.
The party said the APC was behind the arrest of the principal of Ede Muslim High School, Adejare Abass, who signed Adeleke’s testimonial.
“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.
“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 school testimonial.
“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 the APC,” he said.
