#FreeDejiNow: Deji Adeyanju remanded in Prison custody in Nasarawa, may remain there till 2019

The Nigerian police have arraigned political activist Deji Adeyanju, a political activist and before a magistrate court over allegations of criminal conspiracy.

The police arraigned Adeyanju and two others – Daniel Abobama and Boma Williams – for allegedly committing “joint act of criminal defamation, disturbance of public peace, threat to public security and safety and inciting public disturbance”.

Convener of Concerned Nigerians, Adeyanju and the two others were arrested on Wednesday in Abuja during a protest tagged: “Police Are Not Politicians, Save Our Democracy”.

The protesters had trooped to the streets to demand the neutrality of the police in the forthcoming general election.

Police spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, said the trio were arraigned before the magistrate court in Karshi under the penal code law.

He said their counsels were equally in court and that the trio were remanded to Prison custody in Keffi, Nasarawa State “after they failed to meet the bail conditions”.

The conditions included a businessman with a verified address, and two sureties, one of whom must be a level 14 civil servant with a cover letter from his superior.

He also said the matter had been adjourned till January 21, 2019.

In a statement released earlier in the day, Moshood released some extracted from the social media accounts of the trio.
