Activist Deji Adeyanju @adeyanjudeji is free at last. He did not deserve 78-days in prison; depriving him of the freedom guaranteed by Nigerian constitution.

Deji Adeyanju has been released barely one week after the presidential elections.
They simply locked up the young man for months cos of presidential elections.
Deji is a fearless young man.
We need to get Deji into House of Reps in 2023.

BREAKING: Deji Adeyanju has met the bail conditions and has subsequently been freed from Kano prisons.
This is good news.
Let’s hope more political prisoners are released as we approach the beginning of a new administration.
