Detained Deji Adeyanju Is Released, But Sadly Re-Arrested Again [Photos]

Deji Adeyanju, a political activist who was arrested by the police on November 28, was released from a federal prison in Keffi today but was re-arrested by a police team which had laid a siege around the correctional facility, his associates said.

“He was released on Monday afternoon after we met his bail conditions,” Ariyo-Dare Atoye, his long-time associate, told Premium Times tonight. “We are now aware that they are plotting to charge him on allegations of aiding terrorism on social media.”

Mr Atoye identified the Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, as the author of the petition.

Following his re-arrest, Mr Adeyanju was moved to the Abuja police command headquarters, Mr Atoye said, amidst uncertainties over his fate.

“We are expecting him to either be arraigned tomorrow, be released on administrative bail or be kept in perpetual custody under the pretext of continuous investigation,” Mr Atoye said. “This does not bode well for our democracy,” he further stated.

  3. If you can't beat them you'll join them

  4. Some content and graphics of his comments are not civil and conveys hatred. While there is freedom of information, there is need to exercise that freedom with decorum. Your disagreement with any opinion does not need to degenerate to disrespect.

  5. One thing everyone must know io that, nothing is permanent. One day, those in government today will leave that office for someone else.
