He was seen in the company of the Executive Director of  Enough is Enough (EiE), Yemi Adamolekun, and other activists.

Adeyanju said:

“They offered us money at gunpoint, but it is in our tradition we are not going to say much.

“We have come here to say please the money they gave us we don’t want they should come and collect it.

“If they don’t take their money before the end of today, we are going to give it to Falana (Sowore’s counsel) so that he can use it to augment part of the legal fees.”
