Oriyomi Hamzat Arrested

It was gathered that Hamzat was arrested by the Federal Intelligence Bureau of the Nigeria Police Force on Thursday morning in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

Although the reason for his arrest has not been disclosed, sources said that it may not be unconnected with his role in the ongoing case of the murder of late Timothy Adegoke.

Hamzat had been calling for justice over the death of Timothy Adegoke who was until his death a Master’s student at Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife.

Adegoke was allegedly killed in a hotel owned by Chief Rahmon Adedoyin, who is standing trial with his staff over the death of the deceased.

It was gathered that Adedoyin petitioned the Deputy Inspector-General of Police, alleging defamation, false alarm, incitement and unlawful interference with the police investigation and judicial proceedings.

The petition was addressed to the DIG, Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Area 10, Garki, FCT, Abuja; it also copied the Department of State Services (DSS), Osun State Chief Judge, Justice Oyebola Ojo and Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

Adedoyin in his letter through his lawyer, Ahmed Aderoju, complained of criminal defamation, false alarm, incitement, false publication, cyberstalking and criminal threat against him by the founder of Agidigbo FM, Hamzat, and others including Babagbade Imo, Woibile and IJKFMB Music yard.

Meanwhile, Nigerians have taken to social media to demand his release from police custody.
