Eromosele Adene, EndSARS campaigner who was arrested in his residence, has been transferred from Lagos to Abuja by the Nigeria Police Force.

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.

It was learnt that Eromosele and some others had planned to hold a protest on Saturday and had distributed fliers to the effect which contained his phone number.

Police officers were said to have got hold of the flier, tracked his phone, and arrested him at his house.

Eromosele's sister, Onomene, said: “He was detained for over 48 hours without bail. He was first taken to the CP’s office in Lagos, then moved to Panti.

"When the noise started, he was moved to Area F, and on Monday morning, when the lawyer visited the place, we were told he had been moved.

"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.”

The Federal Government have reportedly begun a clampdown on persons involved in the #EndSARS protest that swept across the nation.

The Central Bank of Nigeria had frozen 20 bank accounts belonging to persons involved in the EndSARS protest.

At the same time, the Nigeria Immigration Service has stopped one of EndSARS protesters, Modupe Odele, from leaving the country and seized her passport.
