Deji Adeyanju, a political activist and former social media  director of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has been released by the police.

Reports said he was freed along with his two associates, Daniel Abobama and Boma Williams around 7pm on Monday, December 3, 2018 from the Keffi Prison.

According to a source closely monitoring the situation, the police “forcefully” obtained an order of release from the magistrate at Karshi in order to re-arrest him with a view of charging him for terrorism.

“So based on the pressure from the police, Adeyanju and his comrades were freed without meeting the stringent bail conditions placed by the magistrate,” the source, who did not wish to be named told The Trent.

The police had charged him and two others, Daniel Abobama and Boma Williams, for disturbing the peace among a long list of charges on November 28, 2018 after their organisation, Concerned Nigerians staged a protest against the partisan activities of the Nigerian police.

Charly Boy, a fellow political activist and popular entertainer, has alerted Nigerian to the a plot by the Nigerian police to charge Deji Adeyanju for terrorism in order to silence him.
