Some Twitter users are claiming Deji Adeyanju, wasn’t flown abroad for treatment, but simply went on a vacation after he was beaten by a mob.
We earlier reported that the activist who suffered injuries after being beaten by hoodlums during a #FreedomRally in front of the National Human Rights Commission on Monday December 23,was flown abroad for medical treatment.
The activist who alongside others was protesting against the detention of Omoyele Sowore, was reportedly struggling to breathe after being left with deep cuts all over his body.
He was then said to have been flown to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, where he would be receiving comprehensive medical treatment.
This report has now been disputed by social media users, who claim the activist is a ‘political jobber’ and should not be trusted.
Sharing a snap of a man who is said to be Deji Adeyanju, at the airport, the social media user, General Adeda wrote;
Deji Adeyanju is indeed in critical condition. Loool, una mumu never do. Y’all are gonna keep getting fooled by this political jobbers because you’ve chosen to be naive

Fani-Kayode had earlier taken to Twitter to give details on the attack, he said Deji was attacked by a 150-strong crowd of young, wild drug-crazed almajiris shouting “Sai Baba” which left him unconscious.
Speaking on the development, Atiku on his Twitter page utterly condemned the act meted on Adeyanju, calling for those responsible for the attack to be brought to book.
Atiku further advised the current administration to protect those with contrary views, adding that “without rule of law, there can be no rule at all.”
