Amnesty International Nigeria has condemned the arrest and detention of Mr Deji Adeyanju by the Nigerian Police yesterday.
In their tweet and response, Amnesty Nigeria said that there is a shrinking in the civic space in Nigeria. They added that protest is a human right.
Arrest of @adeyanjudeji by @PoliceNG is an appalling sign of increasing shrinking of civic space in #Nigeria. Protest is a human right. #FreeDejiNow
I have been among those pushing for full and complete federalism practice in Nigeria especially when it comes resource control and exploration which will make the states more proactive in thinking of ways to generate more revenue. This will also mean paying some amount taxes to the Federal Government after the amount they have made from such explorations. Many other people have canvassed for such development but the central government might be sceptical if they will remit or reveal the real amount they made.
