Police have become tool of oppression, intimidation – Adeleke

Femi Makinde, Osogbo
The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke, has condemned the police invitation to him over the allegation of certificate forgery.The candidate spoke through the Director-General of his Campaign Organisation, Chief Lere Oyewumi, at a press conference on Wednesday night.

He said the certificate issue had been tried and judgement given by an Osun State High Court presided over by Justice David Oladimeji.

He said the police invitation was unnecessary because another case on it was also before a court in Abuja, saying the police should stop being used by the All Progressives Congress.

He said, ” The police have become a willing tool of oppression and intimidation in the hand of the APC.”

He, however, commended President Muhamadu Buhari for directing the police to stop the arrest.
