The news of Adeleke’s arrest was made known in a statement released by the spokesperson of the Nigeria Police Force, Frank Mba. In a series of posts on his Instagram page, Davido condemned the arrest of his uncle while also saying he has given up on Nigeria’s democracy. According to the singer, arresting his uncle is tantamount to criminalizing an election win in the country. He also urged his uncle to stay strong because God is the only one that has a say.
It would be recalled that an election tribunal declared Adeleke the winner of Osun State’s 2018 gubernatorial election after he challenged the initial declaration of Gboyega Oyetola as the winner.
