The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to immediately unfreeze the bank accounts of Senator Ademola Adeleke, and those of his family members.
Concise News had reported the anti-graft agency allegedly froze the account of the PDP’s governorship aspirant in the Osun State election, and that of his nephew, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido.
And the PDP, in a statement in Abuja on Saturday by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, said the freezing of the Adeleke’s accounts underscored the fact that APC is mortally afraid of its candidate and has been seeking ways to undermine his electoral fortunes.
He described the freezing of the accounts as oppressive, tyrannical, provocative and a direct recipe for crisis in the state, given that the people of Osun are solidly behind Adeleke ahead of the election.
Ologbondiyan said that the people of Osun State are behind Senator Adeleke and will freely vote for him irrespective of the machinations of the Buhari-led APC.
He, therefore, called on the people of the state to collectively condemn what he called “wickedness meted out on their son and members of his family” and ensure that they use their votes to make a statement “against the APC by voting en masse for their beloved son.”
