Nigerians Demand Immediate Release Of Deji Adeyanju

Nigerians have not stopped talking as Deji Adeyanju, the Convener of Concerned Nigerians, was today arrested by the officers of Nigeria Police while leading a protest tagged ‘Police Are Not Politicians, Save Our Democracy’ in Abuja.

The protest was to demand the non-involvement of the Police in the forthcoming 2019 general election.

Adeyanju was arrested alongside two others at about 10:55am by armed policemen stationed in front of the Force Headquarters in Abuja.

He was with some of the protesters at the premises of the building and while they were arranging the banners and placards in preparation for the rally, the Police arrested him.

The Police, earlier today barricaded the roads leading to the Force Headqaurters to prevent the activists from carrying out the protest.

Last Friday, the group held a similar protest at the Embassy of the United States of America, where they expressed concerns over the credibility of the 2019 general election.

The group accused the security agencies of conniving with the All Progressives Congress (APC) to manipulate the election.

The Last, however has not been heard there are also indications that the Activist will be subsequently be arraigned in court.

This seemingly spurred some Nigerians to anger as they took to twitter to protest Adeyanju’s arrest, describing it as trampling on human rights and democracy.

With the hash tags saying #freeDejiNow, some also expressed pride in Adeyanju’s action (leading the protest), giving him accolades for brazing up and standing for the common man.
