Naija News reports that Deji Adeyanju alongside other protesters demanding the release of Omoyele Sowore were on Monday attacked by thugs in Abuja.
The incidence took place at the headquarters of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) in Abuja when the protesters went to submit a letter of protest to the commission.
Reacting in a post on his Twitter handle, Fani-Kayode said Adeyanju was beaten by alleged President Muhammadu Buhari supporters.
He said ‘Deji was attacked by a 150-strong crowd of young, wild drug-crazed almajiris shouting, “sai Baba” which left him unconscious.
Fani-Kayode wrote: “I spoke to Adeyanju Deji and I can confirm to you that he was badly beaten until he was unconscious. He barely escaped with his life.
“As he was about to submit his letter on Yele Sowore at the Human Rights Commission in Abuja he was attacked by a 150-strong crowd of young,wild drug-crazed almajiris shouting “sai Baba” whilst the police and DSS stood by and did nothing to help.
“They were carrying placards with Buhari’s face on it and they kept on chanting his name. Hear this: beating up opposition members changes nothing. It only strengthens our hand and our resolve and swells our ranks.
“Finally remember that you will not be in power forever and one day you will be called to account for your wickedness, brutality and tyranny.”
