My life Is Under Threat, PDP Member Who Dragged Adeleke To Court Cries Out



One of the three members of the Peoples Democratic Party who dragged Senator Ademola Adeleke to the Federal High Court in Osogbo over his eligibility in the September 22nd governorship election in the state in the state, Mr  Thomas Kolawole Ojetade on Tuesday raised an alarm over threats to his life and members of his family.

Addressing newsmen in Osogbo, Ojetade gave a vivid account of his ordeal in the hands of an associate of Senator Adeleke called Rev. Bunni Jenyo.

He alleged that the PDP chieftain lured him from Parakin area in Ile-Ife to an isolated area in Osogbo where he was forced to sign a document he didn’t know the content.

I’m his narration, he stated that Jenyo called someone and gave him the phone to speak with the person who he said introduced himself as Senator Ademola Adeleke.

His words: “We arrived Osogbo after an hour drive. We arrived at an estate with the inscription AMORITE. This Estate is a large one with many houses standing at reasonable distances from one another. It was a very lonely environment with no one in sight”.

“We went into a particular one among the building that was well fenced but we never entered into the main building. It was while we were there that Rev. Jenyo started calling a number to say to the person at the other end that we were already there but didn’t meet anybody.

“I was reluctant to sign the document because I didn’t know the content. It was then the policeman who had a gun with him told me to sign for the sake of my life and those of my children and wife. He was so firm in his directive to me.

“The voice at the end introduced himself as Senator Ademola Adeleke. I recognized the voice immediately and greeted him. He told me to cooperate with the people I was with. He said that was the only way my safety can be guaranteed and he went off the line.

“At that stage I knew I was in trouble and that the only way I could get out was to ‘cooperate’ like they said. So, with my hands shaking due to the sight of the gun, I later sign the document which content I didn’t know”

Ojetade, however said that he has reported the matter to the police at ‘B’ Division, Oke Otubu Modakeke but needed to put his experience in public domain.

When contacted, Rev. Bunni Jenyo, who is the Zonal Secretary, South West of PDP, denied forcing any withdrawal document.

He however admitted that he invited Mr. Ojetade for a discussion based on his leadership position in the party to find a solution to the error he allegedly committed by taking the party’s candidate to court after election.

Jenyo said Ojetade willingly signed the documents after realizing his mistakes in a conducive atmosphere adding that he had never in his political career engaged in any form of act that can portray him as being violent.
