Deji Adeyanju has an English Language degree from Bayero University Kano. Comrade Deji is a Nigerian activist who has led numerous anti-government demonstrations.
Multiple times, the activist has been arrested for his participation in protests against the Nigerian government.
Deji Adeyanju protested in 2019 for the release of blogger and owner of Sahara Reporters Omoleye Sowore. In 2020, Deji Adeyanju led the October 1st demonstration in Abuja against the administration of President Buhari.
He recently led the protest for Nnamdi Kanu’s release, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). He also led the protest for the release of Kemi Olunloyo, a controversial blogger.
In 2018, Deji Adeyanju was controversially arrested and detained for murder; the activist spent a week in prison between late November and early December 2018 prior to his arrest. When he was arrested and accused of defaming senior security officials, he was leading a demonstration against alleged police bias prior to the general elections.
The police did not file formal murder charges against Mr. Adeyanju. The 13th of December arrest was related to a 2009-concluded homicide investigation.
Although Mr. Adeyanju was named in the murder trial, he was released and acquitted in 2009 following four years of prosecution. He was detained pending the outcome of the trial.
The police stated that the case had not been satisfactorily resolved, implying that Mr. Adeyanju may have skipped bail. In violation of the Nigerian law prohibiting the detention of a suspect for more than 48 hours without charges, the activist was initially held without trial for several days.
The Kano State High Court granted bail to Mr. Adeyanju on February 18 after he had been detained for several weeks.
