Court Restrains Police From Arresting Senator Adeleke

The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party for the Osun state governorship election, Ademola Adeleke, has obtained a court order, restraining the police from arresting him.

Adeleke had approached a High Court of Justice in Osun State after the Nigeria Police Force accused him of engaging in examination malpractice and summoned him.

In granting Adeleke’s application, the court made an order restraining the police, “their agents or privies from taking any steps by way of arresting and or detaining the applicant that will infringe on the liberty and freedom of the applicant to prepare for and participate in the Osun State governorship election of the 22 day of September, 2018 and thereafter, pending the determination at the substantive application.”
