BREAKING: Nigeria Police Force Breaks Silence On Today’s Arrest Of Prince Deji Adeyanju, Others, Reveals The Next Line Of Action

The Nigeria Police Force, has reacted to the arrest of a Social Crusader and Human Rights Activist, Prince Deji Adeyanju, and other protesters, in Abuja.

Adeyanju who was arrested on Wednesday, alongside Daniel Abobama and Boma Williams, was later taken to the FCT Command of the Criminal Investigation Department, CID, for onward arraignment in court.

This was made known in an official statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, FPRO, Ag. DCP, Jimoh Moshood, which was made available to Post-Nigeria.

The Police accused Adeyanju and his group of protesters of criminal conspiracy, joint act, defamation of character, public nuisance, and sundry offences.

“Deji Adeyanju, Daniel Abobama, and Boma Williams, contravened the law and were arrested for criminal conspiracy, joint act, defamation of character, public nuisance, disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant, disturbance of public peace, inciting public disturbance, threat to public security and safety, criminal defamatory and derogatory conduct against constituent authority, and breach of law and order under sections 96, 113, 114, 152, 183, and 391 of Penal Code law”, the statement read in part.

Moshood said that those arrested shall be arraigned in court in Abuja, for prosecution, while justifying that their arrest was done in line with the provisions of the law.

He added: “Deji Adeyanju, Daniel Abobama, and Boma Williams, were arrested by the Police within the powers provided under the Constitution, Police Act and Regulations, the Penal Code Law and Procedures, to prevent crime and ensure the safety of all Nigerians.”

The Police authority, however, acknowledged the fundamental rights of every individual as enshrined in the Nigerian Constitution, but said that such rights must be exercised in such a way not to infringe on others’ rights.

“The Nigeria Police Force is not unaware of the rights of every Nigerian to freedom of expression, peaceful assembly,and association, and freedom of movement, as essentials of Democracy provided for by the 1999 Constitution, Federal Republic of Nigeria, as amended, particularly sections 38, 39, 40 and 41.

“However, these rights must be observed with decorum, in good faith, and without violating the rights of other millions of Nigerians to free movement and access to safety and security, across the country.

“The constitutional rights of every Nigerian as stated in first paragraph above i.e sections 38, 39, 40 and 41, these rights are not absolute, as section 45 of the same Constitution provides for derogations to these rights”, the FPRO noted.

The Police Spokesman, tendered collections from various Facebook posts of Adeyanju, and placards with various inscriptions, as exhibits, saying that, they were “capable of inciting public disturbance, threat to public security and safety.”
