2 mins read

The Yaba Court Magistrate, Mrs. O. A Salawu, has adjourned the case of Eromosele Erene till Tuesday 17th of November 2020.

The magistrate took to adjournment on grounds that she was being threatened by the large presence of the media outfits and citizens.

Eromosele was arrested for participating in the EndSARS protest at Alausa Lagos. His arraignment by the police force comes in days after he was illegally detained and moved to Abuja for interrogation.

The magistrate will be presiding over the revealed remand order and charges filed by the police prosecuting lawyer, Cardoso Yetunde.

Speaking with SaharaReporters after the adjournment of the case, Tunde Jinadu, his counsel, berated the police for seeking an order to detain Adene for another 30 days after initial detention for nine days in Abuja and Lagos.

He stated that the police should allow the court play its role in deciding the case against the activist.

He said, “The court adjourned the application for remand till tomorrow.

“We are surprised that having gone through what he has gone through from one police commissioner to another, from one cell to the other, regardless of not considering his health circumstances.

“The police had concluded investigation in Abuja and file has been sent to legal. We are surprised that another remand is filed to court.

“Why not charge the gentleman to court instead of going from one remand to another.

‘We are even afraid that a remand order was not got in Abuja before he was detained for 10 days.
