The Nigeria Police Force has transferred a campaigner of the #EndSARS movement, Eromosele Adene, from Lagos to Abuja for organising a protest on Saturday.

His sister, Onomene Adene, said the move was done because Lagos is the epicentre of the protest and her brother’s detention could spark a protest in the state.

Adene, a musician and a civil rights activist, was arrested by 15 policemen at his home located in the Ikeja area of Lagos State on Saturday. He was subsequently taken before the Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, and then transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti before being taken to Area F, Ikeja.

However, when his lawyer arrived at the Area F command on Monday, he was informed that Adene had been moved to Abuja.

The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, had told all police formations across the country to ensure that there were no more protests across the nation, a move which activists say is at variance with the constitution.

It was learnt that Eromosele Adene and some others had planned to hold a protest on Saturday and had distributed fliers to the effect which contained his phone number.
