Samuel Ogundipe was taken into custody on Tuesday following a document written by the IGP to be forwarded to Acting President, Yemi Osibanjo on last week's siege to the National Assembly by security officials. 

Several Civil Society groups and International bodies have called for the journalist's release.

However, he was secretly arraigned at a magistrate court in Kubwa without legal representation. 

Stemming from this development, a group called Concerned Citizens announced a rally to demand Samuel's release which held at the Force Headquarters in Abuja on Thursday.

The rally commenced at about 9am with supporters expressing sadness over the inhumane treatment meted on citizens  by the Police.

Also present at the scene was the Presidential aspirant, Yele Sowore along side his campaigners who wore black crested vests that express their support for his political ambition in 2019.

The inscription at the front of the vest read, "Take it back " while at the back, it stated "Sowore 2019".

Sowore's campaigners were mostly seen taking over the rally while trying to confront the Police officers who were stationed around the area. 

Minutes later,  the Force PRO,  Jimoh Moshood addressed the crowd saying he had no idea that the journalist was arraigned without his lawyers. 

The court case was adjourned to August 20 and Moshood called on Nigerians to be present at the next court proceeding. 

He, however, did not respond to questions asked if the Journalist would be detained till the said date of arraignment.
