Activist, Deji Adeyanju, has spent 53 days in prison. According to a post sent in by the #Free DejiAdeyanjuNOW movement, Deji is being detained at Kano Central prison for an offense he was acquitted and discharged on 10yrs ago.

We do not known the condition under which he is kept, we fear for his life and safety. We are calling on the government, the judiciary and all liberty lovers to demand the release of our son, brother and friend, Deji Adeyanju. #FreeDejiAdeyanju” the group wrote
