The Nigeria police have released the former Head of New Media for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and Convener of pro-democracy and good governance group, Concerned Nigerians, Prince Deji Adeyanju and his co-detainee, Brian Jonah Dennis.
The detainees were picked by the security operatives earlier this morning for staging a peaceful protest against the federal government’s insistence that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu be tried secretly.
Adeyanju who spoke shortly after his release, said he was arrested by the police and threatened again but he told them that he was not going to stop the peaceful protests against injustice and breaking of the constitution.
He however thanked all those who voiced out for his release. Recall that a short while after his arrest, several activists and a coalition of human right groups under the Movement for the Advancement of National Transformation (MANTRA), called for his immediate release. The Convener of MANTRA, Comrade Jude Ndukwe had equally ordered for his release failure of which it promised legal actions against the Nigerian police.topics from
