Senator Shehu Sani representing Kaduna central, has called on the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) to release Deji Adeyanju or charge him to court.
Adeyanju was arrested Wednesday morning alongside Daniel Abobama and Boma Williams and later taken to the FCT command of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), for onward arraignment in court.
They were preparing for a planned peaceful protest by the ‘Concerned Nigerians’ group to the Headquarters of the Nigeria Police Force.
The Police said Adeyanju and two others contravened the law and were arrested for:
“Criminal Conspiracy, Joint Act, defamation of character, public nuisance, disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant, disturbance of public peace, inciting public disturbance, threat to public security and safety, criminal defamatory and derogatory conduct against constituent authority and breach of law and order under sections 96, 113, 114, 152, 183 and 391 of Penal Code law.”
Reacting to the arrest on Twitter on Wednesday evening, Senator Sani tweeted:
“Deji Adeyanju should be freed unconditionally or should be charged to court.”
