Deji Adeyanju, convener of concerned Nigerians, has been arrested by the officers of Nigeria police force while leading a protest tagged ‘Police aren’t Politicians, Save Our Democracy’ in Abuja.
The protest was to demand the neutrality of the Police in the forthcoming election. Adeyanju was picked up alongside 2 others at about 10:55am today by armed policemen stationed in front of the Force Headqaurters in Abuja.
He was with a number of the protesters at the premises of the building and while they were arranging the banners and placards in preparation for the rally, the Police arrested him. On Wednesday, the Police obstructed the roads leading to the Force Headqaurters to stop the activists from carrying out the protest.
Last Friday, the group held the same protest at the Embassy of the united states of America, wherever they expressed issues over the credibility of the 2019 election. The group accused the security agencies of conniving with the All Progressives Congress (APC) to manipulate the election.
