Popular Activist Deji Adeyanju released after arrest by Police In Abuja



Deji Adeyanju, who is the convener of Concerned Nigeria Movement and one of the leading voices in the campaign to free Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, the leader of Islamic Movement of Nigeria who has been in the detention of Department of State Services, DSS since December 2015 was arrested for some hours by the police in Abuja on Friday.

Deji was however released on bail few hours after he was arrested.

Deji was arrested by some officials of the Nigeria Police Force for reasons yet know on Friday afternoon.

His arrest of Deji was confirmed by co-convener of #BringBackOurGirls, Aisha Yesufu.

Aisha shared a screenshot of a message sent to her by Deji when he was arrested.

Aisha disclosed that she had been trying to contact Deji but he has not been picking his calls.

Aisha condemned the arrest as she noted that officers of the Nigeria police are fond of arresting harmless citizens, yet they are incapable of curbing killer sect across the country.

“What kind of an inept government gets angry at a citizen demanding for justice yet does not get angry at those killing its citizens? People have been killed in the last 24 hours yet the Nigerian government hasn't mustered the courage to go after them yet comes at Deji”, she said.
