The Nigeria Police Force (NPF), had on Monday night, said Ademola Adeleke, was detained in connection with an ongoing criminal investigations against him.
The People’s Democratic Party (PDP), had earlier issued a statement saying that the the Osun West lawmaker honoured an invitation at the force headquarters in Abuja before he was detained.
The statement said Adeleke is being victimised over his pursuit of the retrieval of the governorship mandate freely conferred on him by the people of Osun state.
Adeleke’s campaign organisation also accused the police of working for Oyetola and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The PDP claimed that the plot was aimed at forcing Adeleke to drop his governorship ambition.
The election tribunal had declared Adeleke duly elected governor but Gboyega Oyetola, the incumbent governor, filed an appeal.
