Basiru told this to reporters on Monday at the Oyetola Campaign Office in Osogbo.

According to him, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission should invite Adeleke. Since she has announced her intention to conduct a crime of voter inducement, which is a crime under Nigerian law.

He said,

“I expected the EFCC to have invited Senator Ademola Adeleke to give an account of what he meant by coming to the state with hard currencies for the Osun State governorship election.

“Certainly, inducement of voters is a great offence. So, for Senator Adeleke to manifestly declare an intention to induce voters, warrants criminal investigation by the EFCC.

“EFCC should summon him for investigation and questioning by what he meant that he has brought pounds, dollars, euros and other hard currencies to buy votes.

“That, clearly, is an intention to commit the offence of inducement of voters which is clearly an electoral offence under the Nigerian law.”
