Nigeria News – Oby Ezekwesili Advises Government Of Buhari Over The Arrest Of Prince Deji Adeyanju
Oby Ezekwesili, the presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN) has condemned the arrest of Prince Deji Adeyanju, the social crusader and human rights activist and other protesters, in Abuja.
On Wednesday morning, he was arrested alongside Boma Williams and Daniel Abobama, and was taken to the FCT, Abuja command of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), for onward arraignment in court.
Ezekwesili called on the Police, while reacting to the development, to stop repressing citizens who are exercising their rights.
The former minister tweeted, ”With this story of arrest of Deji Adeyanju & others who protested in Abuja today, let me advise the government of Buhari, just tune down the intolerant acts now. Police, stop repressing Citizens’ right to dissent. #FreeDejiNow! Do this NOW or earliest tomorrow’.
”Let Citizens like Adeyanju Deji exercise their rights and should they violate the law, make it explicit what and how they broke any law. Police, stop using the law as your cover to trample on Citizens right. #CitizensFirst has the right to protest against anything.”
