Buhari Stops IGP From Arresting Adeleke

President Muhammadu Buhari has told the Inspector-General of police, Ibrahim Idris not to arrest Ademola Adeleke, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Osun State Gubernatorial election, before Saturday.

Recall that the Police had asked Adeleke to immediately appear at the Force headquarters in Abuja over alleged examination malpractice.

The Force said Adeleke was involved in a National Examination Council (NECO) examination malpractice in 2017

However, a presidential source told reporters on Wednesday that Buhari had ordered the IGP not to go ahead with the invitation until the governorship election is over.

Adeleke is one of the four strong contenders in Saturday’s exercise.
