A picture of Nigerian activist, Deji Adeyanju battling for his life while receiving treatment in the hospital after being brutalized by a pro-government group in Abuja on Monday.
Deji Adeyanju is said to have undergone both brain and heart scan to ascertain the level of complications and internal injuries he sustained during an attack on him by the pro-government group.
Saharareporters reported that he was flown to Dubai, United Arab Emirate, on Tuesday for further medical treatment following the deterioration of his health. It was also reported that the result of the Computed Tomography scan conducted shows that the activist has issues with his heart.
Adeyanju has been placed in an emergency ward while doctors battle to save his life.
The activist in a petition to the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, dated December 23, 2019, accused Kabiru Dallah as the leader of the suspected miscreants who attacked him.
Adeyanju and his coalition members were attacked by a pro-government group while submitting a petition to the National Human Rights Commission on the detention of #RevolutionNow convener, Omoyele Sowore in Abuja on Monday.
The group had accused the coalition members of sabotaging the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari’s regime.
The petition to the IG read in part, “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 brutalized and my clothes were torn, while my valuables: iPhone 11 and some cash on me, were stolen.
“I was subsequently rescued by some young activists and ferried in a taxi, while the policemen on the ground in their numbers and around the venue, watched helplessly and did nothing.”
“The miscreants were led by a young man who later introduced himself to the media as Kabiru Ibrahim Dallah of Centre for Leadership Initiative and another fellow who I am yet to ascertain his name,” it stated.
