Just as mentioned earlier Distinguished @adeyanjudeji has been granted bail for the upteenth time by a competent court a few minutes ago. Criminal libel is an illegality in any Democracy and Nigeria is not going to be painted differently by tyrants abusing office. #FreeDejiNow
Deji Adeyanju, who was arrested on November 28th while leading a protest in Abuja, was released on Monday December 3rd from the federal prison in Keffi after meeting his bail condition but was re-arrested by a police team waiting around the prison.
He was arrested alongside two other campaigners, Daniel Abobama and Boma Williams, and arraigned before the Karshi Magistrates’ Court, which remanded them in the Keffi Prisons in Nasarawa State.
Adeyanju and his co-accused had stormed the police headquarters with a big banner with the inscription, ‘Police are not politicians; this rally is about saving democracy; 2019 elections in danger’.
He was rearraigned in court by the police on Tuesday December 4th for Cyber Stalking, Inciting Disturbance, and Criminal Defamation.
He has now been granted bail.
