The embattled principal of Ede Muslim High School 1, Ede in Osun State, Mr. Khalid Abbas alleged to have issued a statement of result of Senior Secondary School Examination and testimonial to Senator Ademola Adeleke, has alleged threat to his life by constant Police invitations.
The principal, who is billed to honour another police invitation in Abuja tomorrow, has fallen sick and receiving treatment in a private hospital in Ede, Osun State.
Speaking with journalists on the hospital bed, yesterday, Mr. Abbas lamented that he had been subjected to series of incarceration by the Police and law enforcement agents for issuing the Senator the credentials.
He disclosed that there were records that Senator Adeleke enrolled into the school in 1976 and finished in 1981.
He added that he acted on the record he met when he became the principal and issued the statement of result and the testimonial.
Abass said: “They are after my life and I don’t know them. I did not collect money from anybody. I did my job without fear or favour. If anybody feels that I have done anything wrong, let them take me to court. I am ready to face the court.”
Also, his family members in a statement by AbdulRasaq Abass alleged that in August last year, the principal was incarcerated by law enforcement agents for 10 days and had been falling sick incessantly since.
He said: “Our son, Khalid Abass was made an object of ridicule by law enforcement agents. He was made to travel between Lagos and Abuja during his 10 days incarceration as a common criminal between August 1 and 11 when he was under unlawful detention.
“He was not allowed any medical attention nor allowed to visit any hospital for check up. Since his said incarceration, our son Khalid Adejare Abass has been in and out of the hospital as an outpatient.
“For now, he is recuperating in a hospital due to his bad health. As family members, we are calling on the law enforcement agents to please leave our son alone and stop further unjustifiable arrest.”
