Policemen arrests Deji Adeyanju And 2 Others – Full story

Policemen arrests Deji Adeyanju And Two Others . Police said on Wednesday they had arrested political activist Deji Adeyanju as well as two others who were part of a rally Wednesday morning.

Police spokesman Jimoh Moshood said in a statement Wednesday afternoon that Mr. Adeyanju, Daniel Abobama and Boma Williams were arrested in Abuja on charges of criminal defamation and violation of public peace.
They have been tried in a court in Abuja.

Moshood said the arrest of the three citizens did not violate either the Nigerian Constitution or the establishment powers of the police.

And even though they have rights as citizens, “these rights must be respected with decorum, in good faith and without violating the rights of millions of other Nigerians to free movement and access to security throughout the country.”

The police accused Messrs. Adeyanju, Abobama and Williams of contravening the criminal statutes for their conduct both physically and online.

“They are already tried in Abuja for trial,” police said.
Mr. Moshood attached some signs and screenshots of Mr. Adeyanju’s Facebook page, which the police considered criminally defamatory and “capable of inciting public disturbances, threats to public safety, criminal defamatory and derogatory conduct against the constituent authority and violation of law and order. ”

Mr. Adeyanju, who has led regular protests against injustice and other high-profile behaviors of public institutions and individuals, has frequently clashed with security agencies.

He had been arrested at least three times in 2018, while directing or participating in protests.

It was not immediately known if Mr. Adeyanju and others had contacted their lawyers before being charged on Wednesday afternoon.
