Deji Adeyanju was picked up just before the commencement of protests alongside two others by armed policemen allegedly belonging to the Inspector General of Police Special Squad.

Mr. Adeyanju and his fellow protesters had been arranging placards and banners in preparation for the commencement of protests when they were arrested.

The Nigeria Police had blocked off access roads to the force headquarters to prevent the protesters from carrying out their rally.

The Concerned Nigerians Movement had earlier carried out a similar protest at the United States Embassy in Abuja where the group expressed concerned about the credibility of next year’s general election under the incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari.

The group had also accused security agencies in the country especially the Nigeria Police of conniving with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to manipulate the electoral process in the country.
