Just In: Saraki urges Buhari to direct release of Deji Adeyanju

The President of the Nigerian Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to direct the release of rights activist and social critic, Deji Adeyanju and ensure that his fundamental human rights are not continuously abused by the Police.

In a series of tweets using his verified Twitter handle, Saraki noting that the President needs to intervene to find out whether the current travails of Adeyanju have anything to do with his frequently expressed viewpoints against the Federal Government, adding that the way his case has been handled and the last decision of the Magistrate Court to remand the young man in prison till after the conclusion of the 2019 Polls has presented the nation’s democracy in bad light.

Saraki also called on human rights protection groups to wade into the matter and ensure that the rights of a citizen is helplessly trampled upon.

“At this point, President Buhari should not allow the excesses and over-zealousness of some security agents to give his government a bad name,” he said.
