He was detained following a remand order by the magistrate as a result of a murder charge preferred against him by the police.

The police filed a five-count charge against the agitators at a magistrates’ court in Yaba, Lagos.

The charge bothers on murder, unlawful assembly, unlawful society, and conduct likely to cause a breach of public peace.
