Other people joined in the  suit are the Assistant Inspector-General of Police, Zone 11, Mr Leye Oyebade; an Assistant Commissioner of Police, Simon Lough;  and an Assistant Superintendent of Police, John Faluyi.
 
Adeleke, who  is currently challenging the declaration of Adegboyega Oyetola as the winner of the  Osun governorship election,  urged the court to further impress it on the respondents the earlier order made by  the  Federal High Court, Abuja,  on the matter.

Ajibola said,  in spite of  the fact that the respondents were duly served the earlier order of an Abuja Federal High Court, they still went ahead to  detain the lawmaker.
 
In his ruling,  Justice S.O.  Falola ordered the  police not to arrest or detain the Senator pending the determination of the substantive case before him. He made reference to the ruling of Justice I.E. Ekwor of the Federal High Court, Abuja, who  granted Adeleke permission  to travel  to the United States on  May 7  for medical attention.

Justice Falola observed that the ruling of the Federal High Court had prevented the respondents from arresting or detaining the applicant.
 
The judge said he had to allow the order made by Ekwor J. of the Federal High Court, Abuja, in charge No, FHC/ABJ/CR/156/2018 on  May 3,  2019 to continue to operate.

Justice Falola subsequently issued Form 48 against the police, asking them to take notice of consequence of disobedience of court order. He adjourned the case  to June 17, 2019.

The matter will come up on the next adjourned date. Recall that the arrest and detention of Adeleke had generated serious reactions from the public amid other court cases coming against the PDP candidate even as he battles Governor Gboyega Oyetola of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC over the outcome of the election in the state.
