Adeyanju: CSOs petition United States over Adeyanju’s ‘illegal’ detention.

 

Coalition of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) has petitioned the United States embassy over the persecution and detention of rights activist, Deji Adeyanju, by the Nigeria Police Force (NPF).

In a statement yesterday in Abuja, Ariyo-Dare Atoye of the Coalition in Defence of Nigerian Democracy and Constitution, Raphael Adebayo of Free Nigeria Movement and Moses Paul of Mad Connect called on the U.S. to prevail on Nigeria to respect the laws of the land by releasing Adeyanju.

According to the coalition, the activist is being persecuted unlawfully for a case in which he had been discharged and acquitted.

It also urged the U.S. government to beam its searchlight on Festus Keyamo (SAN) by reviewing his visa and investigating the role he played in the “autocratic regime” to undermine democracy.

The letter to the U.S. embassy read in part: “We write as concerned civil society groups to bring to your attention the lingering persecution of one of our comrades, Deji Charles Adeyanju, a foremost civil rights activist in Nigeria, by the Nigerian government using the instrumentality of the police.

“After several arrests in the last six months, he has been illegally confined in a Kano prison since December 18, 2018 over a matter that constitutes double jeopardy.

“Being a strategic partner to Nigeria and a strong advocate of human rights the world over, we wish to draw your attention to Adeyanju’s illegal arrests, incarceration, ethnocentric persecution and state-engineered plot to strangulate him from continuing to speak truth to power as a fearless and patriotic Nigerian activist, as well as put him out of circulation indefinitely by hook or crook.
