A Nigerian youth arrested for leading #EndSARS protest against the government has liver problem.
The sister of Eromosele Adene, Onomene Adene cried out that her brother is not well and is suffering from a liver problem.
She, therefore, appealed to the police authorities to release her brother on health grounds as his continued detention could worsen his health condition.
This newspaper had reported that 27-year-old 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 moved to the Force Criminal Investigation Department at the Police Headquarters, Abuja, on Monday.
Speaking Tuesday on a television programme in Lagos, Onomene said, “During his Belle Food Naija last year, he went to about six states to share alms.
“So, when he came back, he had some issues with his liver – may be the change of environment or the situation of the places he found himself because of his love for this country.
“He came back with some issues with his liver, hepatitis something, I can’t remember which. That is not even good for him. Him being there, him being in a place he is not used to is not good for him. Anything can actually happen to him. He needs to be released.”
Also, Eromosele’s legal representative, Babatunde Jinadu, said his client has been in the clinic since his transfer to the FCID in Abuja.
Jinadu said the police authorities were playing “hide-and-seek” with his client’s case but expressed hopes to secure his bail today in Abuja.
“I am here to see him and I will still apply for his bail again after whatever investigation they want to carry out. And I hope they will grant the bail,” he stated.
