Abuja (Sundiata Post) — The former New Media Director to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Deji Adeyanju, was, on Friday morning, arrested by men of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) at about 8:30.
Adeyanju, who was arrested at the Unity Fountain in Abuja, tweeted, “Arrested” on his Twitter account, @adeyanjudeji, by 8:34 a.m.
There are speculations that Adeyanju may have been arrested on the account of his stance against the secret trial of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
He was arrested with another leader of the movement, Brian Jonah Dennis, while leading a peaceful protest against the Federal Government.
No reason has been given for their arrest.
But it would be recalled that Adeyanju has been championing the #NoToSecretTrial for Nnamdi Kanu on the social media.
As the protest began on Friday morning, Adeyanju, in a series of tweets, claimed that all entrances to the Unity Fountain were barricaded by men of the NPF before he was whisked away by the officers.
Here are the tweets:
“I am at the Unity Fountain and Officers of The Nigerian police are trying to stop me from entering the Unity Fountain park
“Over 300 Police officers have manned the Unity Fountain to stop the #NoToSecretTrial procession for Nnamdi Kanu.
“All entrances to the Unity Fountain have been barricaded by officers of the Nigerian Police.
“Arrested,” (which came by 8:34 a.m.)
