The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke , has accused the police of conniving with the ruling All Progressives Congress to prevent him from going ahead with the petition , he is planning to file against the APC candidate , Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola .
Adeleke said this in a statement made available to our correspondent in Osogbo on Tuesday .

The statement followed a court ’ s order that the Inspector General of Police , Ibrahim Idris , should produce Adeleke and four others in court on October 31 for arraignment over the allegation of examination malpractices .

He said the APC and the police had planned to arrest him two days before the September 22 governorship election but the move was stalled by a court order .
He , however , stated that no amount of intimidation would distract him from his determination to retrieve his alleged stolen mandate .

“ The police is in collusion with the APC in the plot to implicate me on trumped – up charges , as a way of disrupting the commencement of our petitions before the Election Petition Tribunal.

“ Their plan was originally to arrest me before the election so that I won ’ t be able to effectively participate in the governorship election but the court order and interventions stopped the evil agenda . Now , that the APC know the game is up and the stolen mandate is about to be retrieved , the party in collusion with the police has perfected a fresh plot to distract , harass and intimidate me .

“ Nigerians are aware that the so- called examination case is politically motivated . The public is aware of the many intimidation and attacks , I have been subjected to before, during and after the election . We stand by the people and we will not surrender their mandate to anti -democratic forces .

“ Let me use this medium to reassure the people of Osun state that our lawyers are in control of the situation . All necessary legal actions are being taken to stop these illegalities from standing . ”
