The Nigeria Police Force has moved an arrested protester of the EndSARS movement, Eromosele Adene, from Lagos to Abuja for organizing a protest on Saturday.

His sister, Onomene Adene, told The newsmen on Monday that the move was done because Lagos is the epicenter of the protest and her brother’s detention could spark a protest in the state.

Daily PUNCH had reported that Eromosele, who is a musician and a civil rights activist, was arrested by 15 policemen at his home located in the Ikeja area of Lagos State on Saturday.

He was subsequently taken before the Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, and then transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti before being taken to Area F, Ikeja.

However, his sister told our correspondent that when her brother’s lawyer arrived at the Area F command on Monday, he was informed that Eromosele had been moved.

She said, “He has been moved to Abuja and I think they decided to move him because they would not be able to control the outrage in Lagos.”
