Comrade Deji Adeyanju allegedly beaten to a comma by group of young men during protests by supporters of the convener of #RevolutionNow movement, Mr Omoyele Sowore, and counter-protesters in Abuja.
The Dailyfocusng learnt that Deji Adeyanju is now the talks of the day as some Nigerians table the matter on Twitter, it has become the trends of the day.
Could it be because he shared a picture of ‘pap and akara’ with a caption “Breakfast Before Aluta” earlier in the day? No.
The activist became one of the most talked-about topics on the social network because he was beaten up by a group of young men during protests by supporters of the convener of #RevolutionNow movement, Mr Omoyele Sowore, and counter-protesters in Abuja.
The clash occurred in the presence of police personnel outside the Headquarters of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) in the Federal Capital Territory.
This took place after the pro-Sowore supporters demanded the release of the activist while the other group of protesters staged the demonstration in support of his continued detention.
The other group then attacked the pro-Sowore protesters who were at the commission to submit a petition against the Federal Government.
Television’s correspondent confirmed that the attack occurred in the full view of the police who had to eventually intervene to restore calm.
The security operatives later made some arrests.
A civil rights group, the Enough Is Enough movement, had given a 14-day ultimatum to the Federal Government to release Sowore or face nationwide protests.
So unfortunate as Deji Adeyanju beaten to a comma by group of young men during protest.
