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.

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.
