The former head of new media for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and convener of Pro-Democracy and Good Governance Group, Concerned Nigerians, Prince Deji Adeyanju has again been arrested by the Nigerian Police for embarking on a peaceful protest.

In the new protest, the activist was demanding for the freedom of renowned blogger and convener of PDP National Youth Frontier, Mr Austin Okai, who Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) operatives arrested following allegation of criticisms of Kogi State government.

Adeyanju was said to have been arrested alongside the co-convener of the group, Mr. Ariyo Raphael Dare, in front of the National Human Rights Commission in Abuja.
