Deji Adeyanju, former New Media Director to the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) has been reportedly arrested by men of the Nigeria Police.

Adeyanju, who doubles as convener of Concerned Nigeria group was arrested at the Unity Fountain with another leader of the movement, Brian Jonah Dennis in Abuja on Friday.

Adeyanju’s  arrest might not be unconnected with a statement signed by him informing Nigerians that protest organized against the Nigerian government over its insistence on the secret trial of Nnamdi Kanu would kick off in Abuja today.

The PDP chieftain has been in the forefront of the campaign calling the immediate release of all political prisoners, including the leader of The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

In a series of tweets on Friday, Adeyanju claimed that all entrances to the Unity Fountain were barricaded by men of the Nigeria Police before he was whisked away by the officers.
