BREAKING! Osun Rerun: Court Orders Release Of PDP Leader, Diekola
An Osogbo High Court has ordered the police to release a Peoples Democratic Party chieftain, Fatai Oyedele Diekola and two others from detention.
The order was given by Justice A.O Ayoola on Wednesday following an application filed on behalf of Diekola; Sikiru Lawal and Segun Adekilekun.
A certified true copy of the order was made available in Osogbo on Wednesday by a former Commissioner of Information, Sunday Akere, who is Diekola’s friend.
The police in Osun State had said that officers did not find other people’s permanent voter’s cards (PVCs) Diekola when he was arrested on Monday, contradicting a rumour that has taken roots amongst partisan political interests in the state.
Police spokesperson Folasade Odoro said detectives are only investigating claims that Fatai Diekola was caught while trying to purchase PVCs from residents in Alekuwodo, a packed neighbourhood in Osogbo, the state capital.
“If he was caught with PVCs, at the conclusion of investigation, a statement will definitely be issued,” Ms Odoro, a police superintendent said.
She, however, said Diekola’s mission at the location he was arrested was being investigated, especially claims that he was trying to buy PVCs from residents around the area prior to being mobbed.
“Something must have brought about the fracas that happened, after conclusion of investigation we will know the reason,” the spokesperson added
