Is Senator Adeleke's Arrest a Plot By Nigeria Ruling Party?
Ademola Adeleke was first arrested in September 2018, a few days before the Osun governorship election in which he was the strongest People's Democratic Party candidate running against the ruling All Progressives Congress candidate Gboyega Oyetola. Although reasons for his rearrest remain sketchy, there are allegations that the senator wrote the West African Examinations Council exams with forged documents to beef up his credentials for the elections in Osun State, which he subsequently lost.
