Release Ede School Principal, He Didn’t Commit Any Crime, Adeleke Campaign Organization Cries Out To Police

A statement signed and issued by Olawale Rasheed, the Director of Media and Publicity of Adeleke Campaign Organization denied that the tesimonial issues to Adeleke by the principal was forged.

The organization said there was only a minor error as regards the date written on the testimonial wondering how that could be criminalised to the extent of arresting the school principal and taken to Lagos.

The statement therefore demanded that the police should unconstitutionally release the school principal alleging that it was an attempt to persecute Adeleke.

It reads, "We are constrained to issue this statement on the recent arrest and persecution of the Principal of Ede Muslim High School over false accusations of forged school Testimonial issued to Senator Ademola Adeleke as a former student of the school because of a date error.

"We note with great alarm the politically motivated arrest and unwarranted media attacks designed as a tool of harrassment, persecution and character assassination of the PDP flag bearer; Senator Ademola Nurudeen Adeleke.

"It is insane to continue to peddle falsehood questioning Senator Adeleke's attendance of Ede Muslim Grammer School (Now Ede Muslim High School), where he was very popular and well known for his amiable and friendly character, always drawing people close and seeking their cheerfulness and joy, a fact his school mates and alumni members attested to. He was in fact the President of the Old students association until recently.

"We note with great concern the ridiculous criminalising of a simple issuance of School Testimonial to a former student. The politicization of a routine school adminstrative process is hereby condemned in its strictest terms and we call the Police authorities to please call their men to order and redirect their attention and efforts to investigating and solving real crimes and not trumped up accusations.

"It must be reaffirmed that issuance of a testimonial duly signed by authorities of the school to an ex student CANNOT be a crime irrespective of the date on it. There is clearly more to this exercise than routine investigation. How can a date issue on a Testimonial and not a Certificate be a matter that attaracts the attention of FCIB Alagbon officers from Lagos?

"We therefore call on the police authorities to unconditionally release Mr Abbass Khalib Adejare; the principal of Ede Muslim High School who is currently held in Lagos a distant and disconnected jurisdiction of School in Ede, Osun State. The school under his supervision had only performed a legal administrative duty through the issuance of a testimonial. Please note that a Testimonial is simply a statement of character attestation and confirmation of the years of attendance at the school and not a school certificate."
