Mr Adeyanju told PREMIUM TIMES that he was released from Kano Central Prison on Friday afternoon. The activist’s liberation came nearly two weeks after the Kano State High Court granted him bail.

Mr Adeyanju stated that he was on his way to Lagos, from which he would next proceed to Abuja, where he has lived and worked for over a decade.

Mr Adeyanju was arrested on December 13 on murder charges, which drew national attention.

The arrest occurred after the activist served a week in prison between late November and early December 2018. He was arrested while spearheading a protest against suspected police bias before the general election and accused of defaming senior security officials.

Mr Adeyanju did not face any substantial murder accusations from the police. The December 13 arrest was tied to a homicide investigation that was resolved in 2009.

Despite being named in the murder trial, Mr Adeyanju was released and acquitted after four years of prosecution in 2009. He was remanded in detention throughout the trial.

The police stated that the case was not properly finished, implying that Mr Adeyanju may have jumped bail. Nonetheless, they did not immediately charge the activist with murder, instead holding him for days without trial, in violation of Nigerian law, which bars detention of a suspect for more than 48 hours without charge.

After several weeks in incarceration, Mr Adeyanju was granted release by the Kano State High Court on February 18. However, his associates raised an alarm a few days later, accusing court officials of stalling his release as part of a conspiracy to prevent him from voting in the election.

Legal commentators contended that Mr Adeyanju may have been a victim of double jeopardy, a constitutional concept that prohibits a citizen from being tried more than once for the same act.

Mr Adeyanju, a critic of the Buhari administration, claimed that his arrest was unjustified, politically motivated, and intended to keep him away from the public after the presidential election.

The election took place on February 23, and President Muhammadu Buhari was declared winner for a second term.
