Alleged Certificate Forgery: Police Arrest Senator Adeleke



 Senator Ademola Adeleke

Senator Ademola Adeleke has been arrested by men of the Nigeria Police Force.

The lawmaker was taken into custody on the evening of Monday, May 6.

Adeleke’s arrest was affirmed by the force spokesman, Mr. Frank Mba.


He said: “Senator Adeleke is currently in police custody. He was taken into custody in the evening of today 6th May 2019 in connection with ongoing criminal investigations touching on his person.

“Meanwhile, in the best tradition of natural justice and fair hearing, he has already been served with the relevant charge sheet containing his alleged offences in the presence of his Attorneys. He will be arraigned in a competent court of law tomorrow, 7th May 2019

The PDP condemned Mr Adeleke’s latest arrest because the charges police filed against him in 2018 were still pending in court.

Mr Adeleke’s office said he reported at the Force Headquarters in Abuja to honour a police invitation at about 9:00 a.m. Monday. He was, however, allegedly driven to Maitama Area Command Headquarters, where he had been held. Mr Mba declined to speak on where Mr Adeleke is being detained, but strongly denied that he had been in police custody since 9:00 a.m
