“I know his arrest must be connected with the rally he organised last week for Vice President, Osinbajo, at the APC secretariat.

“A day after he organised the rally, he received lots of strange calls asking him irrelevant questions.”

Newsmen contacted the Commissioner of Police, Undie Adie for comments but the Commissioner denied Akintomide’s arrest.
