Adeyanju, alongside two others, were arrested earlier on Wednesday by the Police while leading a protest tagged ‘Police Are Not Politicians, Save Our Democracy’ in Abuja.
Reacting to the report Oby Ezekwesili said: "With this story of arrest of Deji Adeyanju & others who protested in Abuja today, let me advise the government of Buhari, just tune down the intolerant acts now.
"Police, stop repressing Citizens’ right to dissent. #FreeDejiNow! Do this NOW or earliest tomorrow."
She added that, "Let Citizens like Adeyanju Deji exercise their rights and should they violate the law, make it explicit what and how they broke any law. Police, stop using the law as your cover to trample on Citizens right. #CitizensFirst has the right to protest against anything."
