Protesters against partisanship by the police in Akwa Ibom  in Keffi prisons



A Karshi Magistrate Court, Abuja, has remanded an activist and Convener, Concerned Nigerians, Deji Adeyanju;  Daniel Abobama and Boma Williams in Keffi prisons, Nasarawa State, for protesting against alleged partisanship by the police.

The three accused persons had led a protest to the Force headquarters, Abuja, on Wednesday, against the police for sealing the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly on Tuesday, when they were picked up and hastily arraigned in court.


The men were charged with criminal conspiracy, public nuisance, disturbance of public peace, and threat to public security and safety, criminal defamatory and derogatory conduct against constituted authority and breach of law and order under Sections 96, 113, 114, 152, 183 and 391 of Penal Code.

The accused persons were, however, granted bail by the presiding Magistrate, Aliu Kagarko, but they could not immediately meet the conditions which included two sureties one of whom must be a level 14 civil servant with a cover letter from his superior, and also a businessman with a verified address.

They were subsequently taken to Keffi prisons by the police after they failed to provide the sureties.

Adeyanju and his co-accused had stormed the police headquarters with a big banner with the inscription, ‘Police are not politicians; This rally is about saving democracy, 2019 elections in danger.’

Justifying their arrest, the police spokesman, Moshood Jimoh, claimed the men were arrested for contravening the law, adding their alleged defamatory comments and utterances, were capable of “inciting public disturbance, threat to public security and safety, criminal defamatory and derogatory conduct against constituted authority and breach of law and order.”


The protesters had earlier expressed concern about the current state of affairs in the country “where the Nigeria Police Force is increasingly becoming a tool to be used against real and perceived political enemies of the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress.”
