Deji Adeyanju Petitions IG over Assault

Nigerian political activist, Deji Adeyanju, who was brutalised by a pro-government group and now hospitalised in a hospital in Dubai has petitioned the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, asking for investigation into the attack.

According to the petition dated December 23, 2019, he fingered one Kabiru Dallah as the leader of the suspected miscreants who attacked him.

Adeyanju and his coalition members were attacked by a pro-government group while submitting a petition to the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on the detention of #RevolutionNow convener, Omoyele Sowore in Abuja on Monday.

The petition to the IG alleged that the “planned intent and the conspiracy of the invading group was obvious when they made for me and chased me to a point where I was manhandled, assaulted and seriously brutalized and my clothes were torn, while my valuables: iPhone 11 and some cash on me, were stolen.

“I was subsequently rescued by some young activists and ferried in a taxi, while the policemen on the ground in their numbers and around the venue, watched helplessly and did nothing.”

“The miscreants were led by a young man who later introduced himself to the media as Kabiru Ibrahim Dallah of Centre for Leadership Initiative and another fellow who I am yet to ascertain his name,” he recalled in the petition.
