#EndSARS: Police accuse Eromosele of cyberstalking, criminal incitement, want him detain for 30 more days
EndSARS campaigner Eromosele was on Monday arraigned at the Yaba Magistrate Court in Lagos as policemen attached to the State Criminal Investigation Department filed an application seeking to remand him for an extra 30 days.
The policemen had last week arrested Eromosele in Ikeja and taken him to the police command headquarters and then transferred him to the Area F Command before detaining him at the SCID, Panti. He was last Monday flown to Abuja and detained for seven days before being brought back to Lagos on Sunday.
However, rather than charge him, the policemen secretly approached a Magistrate, O.A Salau, without the consent of his lawyer and applied for a remand order to detain him for an extra 30 days.
When he was arraigned before the Yaba Magistrates Court in Lagos on Monday, November 16, the Police requested that Adene be remanded in custody for 30 days pending investigations.
The defendant was charged for criminal incitement, cyberstalking, provoking breach of public peace, and conduct likely to cause the breach of peace.
Authorities told the court that he was arrested at the scene of a demonstration even though videos and eyewitness accounts showed he was arrested in his home.
The remand request signified that he was caught with exhibits and had made a confessional statement.
The magistrate subsequently fixed the ruling for Tuesday.
