Police detain activist Adeyanju over homicide case he was “discharged and acquitted” 4 yrs ago

Reprieve has come the way of social activist, Deji Adeyanju, as a Kano State High Court on Monday granted him bail.

According to his lawyers, Adeyanju, who has been in custody for about 67 days, is expected to provide sureties and a bail of N500,000 to conditions he has to fulfil.

Before his arrest for alleged murder, a case said to have been dispensed with years ago, he had a running battle with the police which arrested and charged him to court on charges bothering on obstruction and incitement.
