Activist, Deji Adeyanju, is seeking an investigation into an attack on him and members of his coalition.
Mr Adeyanju has petitioned the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu to apprehend those involved in the attack
He mentioned one Kabiru Dallah as the leader of the suspected miscreants who attacked him.
According to him, they were attacked by a pro-government group while submitting a petition to the National Human Rights Commission on the detention of the #RevolutionNow convener, Omoyele Sowore, in Abuja.
“The planned intent and the conspiracy of the invading group was obvious when they made for me and chased me to a point where I was manhandled, assaulted and seriously brutalised and my clothes were torn, while my valuables were stolen”, Adeyanju said
Meanwhile, the West African Human Rights Defenders Network has expressed concern over the assault on the activists in the presence of policemen.
The network also called on the government to investigate the incident and bring the perpetrators to justice.
