Eromosele Adene was arrested over the weekend for distributing flyers and encouraging people to continue the protest that was abruptly ended due to the killing of the protesters at Lekki Toll Gate on October 20.

“He has been moved to Abuja and I think they decided to move him because they would not be able to control the outrage in Lagos,” said Onomene Adene, his sister.

The policemen saw the fliers that were distributed, which had his phone number, consequently leading him to be tracked to his house.

Mohammed Adamu, Inspector-General of Police, had instructed all police commands to prevent further protests in various areas.
