The Convener of Concerned Nigerians, Deji Adeyanju has been arrested today by the officers of Nigeria Police Force while leading a protest tagged “Police Are Not Politicians, Save Our Democracy” in Abuja.
The protest was to demand the neutrality of the Police in the forthcoming general elections.
According to Sahara Reporters, Adeyanju was picked up alongside two others at 10:55am by armed policemen stationed in front of the Force Headqaurters in Abuja.
He was with some of the protesters at the headquarters’ premises of the building supervising the arrangement of banners and placards for the rally when he was picked up.
Last Friday, the group held a similar protest at the embassy of the United States of America, where they expressed concerns over the credibility of the 2019 general election.
The group accused the security agencies of conniving with the All Progressives Congress (APC) to manipulate the election.
