Senator Ademola Adeleke has appeared in court following his arrest on Monday by men of the Nigerian Police Force.
Senator Adeleke who arrived on Tuesday at the Magistrate Court in Abuja has been docked and is objecting his arraignment.
He was however docked upon his arrival at the court and is objecting to his arraignment.
Counsel to the police says he is ready to proceed with the case but his Counsel (Adeleke), Chris Adebiyi is objecting the arraignment.
He said a Federal High Court in Osun State has granted an order restraining the police from arresting the lawmaker and that the court also gave him leave to travel to the US on the account of ill health.
He said the order of the Federal High Court asked the defendant to answer to their invitation but the court ordered that the first defendant return his passport to the court three days after his return.
Mr Adebiyi explained that the court ordered that the police will not arrest Senator Adeleke upon honouring the police invitation.
He said a High Court in Osun state also affirmed and upheld the order. (Channels TV)
