Coordinator of a youth group that organised a political rally for Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, last week in Akure, Bamise Akintomide, has been arrested by the police in Ondo State.
It was gathered that he is currently being detained at the Criminal and Investigation Bureau Department of the Ondo State Police Command headquarters in Akure, the capital.
Multiple sources confirmed Akintomide’s arrest on Monday.
It is believed that is arrest is not unconnected to the rally he organized in support of the Vice President.
A source said, “He (Akintomide) was arrested by the police. I cannot really say if he was directly picked up or invited for questioning.
“But I can confirm to you that he has been at the police headquarters in Akure since weekend and has been detained over there.
“I know his arrest must be connected with the rally he organised last week for Vice President, Osinbajo, at the APC secretariat.
“A day after he organised the rally, he received lots of strange calls asking him irrelevant questions.”
