Moyinoluwa Olowoyo: Ekiti Court Remands #EndSARS Activist In Prison Amid Governor Fayemi’s Desperate Move To Jail Demonstrator

The Ekiti State High Court has ordered that a student activist, Moyinoluwa Olowoyo, be remanded at the Police Headquarters over his participation in #EndSARS protest last year.

The father of the activist, Mr Olowoyo told SaharaReporters on Wednesday that the court ordered his son to be remanded till Friday.

“After a lot of struggle between the lawyer and the judge, he (Moyinoluwa) was asked to be remanded at the (Police) Headquarters till Friday. We are still in the court. The lawyer has promised to perfect his bail conditions but we don’t know how much his bail is at the moment. We don’t have any money to pay for the bail. I have been disturbed a lot,” he said.

SaharaReporters had on September 16 reported that Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State and the Attorney-General of the state again charged Moyinoluwa to court for his participation in #EndSARS protest last year.

The #EndSARS protest was championed by Nigerians youths last year to call for the disbandment of a brutal police unit, Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

According to a court document obtained by SaharaReporters, the Ekiti State Government as the complainant, alleged that Moyinoluwa conspired to commit an offence of malicious damage on October 18, 2020.

Last year, Moyinoluwa was also arrested by the police and secretly moved to the Police Headquarters, Abuja, where he was detained for 30 days without trial.

However, after pressure from Nigerians, the police moved him back to Ekiti, where he was detained before his arraignment in November 2020.

He was arraigned at a Magistrate Court and charged with arson.

At his arraignment, the magistrate, Abdul Lawal, granted Moyinoluwa bail in liberal terms.

He was able to perfect his bail condition and was set free by the police.

Condemning the arrest and unlawful detention of Moyinoluwa last year, human rights activist, Omoyele Sowore, berated the Ekiti State governor, Fayemi, who oversaw the arrest of innocent protesters in the state.

"This is draconian for an innocent guy being framed over #EndSARSProtests! Governor Kayode Fayemi, we won’t forget the injustice meted out to these youngsters," he said.

But about 10 months after regaining his freedom, the Government of Fayemi filed another suit at the High Court sitting in Ado Ekiti, the state capital to ensure another illegal detention of Moyinoluwa.

A top source privy to the matter recently told SaharaReporters that Governor Fayemi and his Attorney-General and Commissioner of Justice, Wale Fapohunda “are hell-bent on victimising (Moyinoluwa) Olowoyo”.

The court document read in part, “The court is informed by the Attorney-General on behalf of the State that Moyinoluwa Victor Olowoyo is charged with the following offence:

“Count 1: conspiracy contrary to Section 516 of the Criminal Code Law, Cap C16, Laws of Ekiti State of Nigeria, 2012.

“Moyinoluwa Victor Olowoyo with others at large on or about the 18th day of October, 2020 at Ado-Ekiti within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court did conspire together to commit an offence to wit: Malicious Damage.

“Count 2: Malicious Damage contrary to Section 451 of the Criminal Code Law, Cap C16, Laws of Ekiti State of Nigeria, 2012.

“Moyinoluwa Victor Olowoyo with others at large on or about the 18th day of October, 2020 at Ado-Ekiti within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court did destroy the vehicle of the press crew of the His Excellency, the Governor of Ekiti State.”

SaharaReporters

It is a shame that @kfayemi and @AGWalefapohunda are hellbent on silencing Moyinoluwa Olowoyo aka Gigabyte for participating in #EndSARS. @kfayemi once ran a pirate radio station @AGWalefapohunda was well known in human rights circles in Nigeria before they both got into power!

To this very moment slavery continues in parts of Africa and the Islamic world. Very little noise is made about it by those who denounce the slavery of the past in the West, because there is no money to be made denouncing it and no political advantages to be gained.

NIGERIA has the worst system on Earth...

You arrest protesters and the court will detain them and still make them pay for bail it's really unfortunate.

Those Zamfara lawmakers working with bandits were only suspended.

You see the F*#kerrrrry?!

Fake news.
The court remanded an arsonist, looting mastermind, and a violent instigator in jail for his various crimes but Sowore chose to hide his actual crimes.

Sowore, the great liar actually believes that a "protester" has the right to commit any crime and go scots-free.
Unfortunately for him, rioters are not exempted from criminal prosecution.

Bail is not guaranteed, it's up to the judge. Even in the US, two people can have thr same offense and one might get bail while the other does not.
It's at the judge's discretion.

You cannot rewrite history.

You forgot to mention that NG was complicit I'm sponsoring thugs to hijack and attack protesters.

FG also deployed soldiers to shoot and kill protesters but it's innocent protesters who later began a riot due to FG escalating the situation and killing people that you want to blame.

Is this the best you could do? Comparing a man who exercised his civil right to protest against Police brutality to another man who is accused of rape portrays your subpar intelligence. Let me warn you that unless you’re part of the cream of the crop of this country, Nigeria might happen to you. Do not allow your misguided political axiom delude you from the fact that Nigeria is a failed system. Did Moyinoluwa kill Policemen? Did he burn down public assets? Unlike you spineless swine, he stood for his belief in a better Policing in Nigeria. He’s 10times the man you’ll never become.
