Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has alleged that the mob that attacked activist, Deji Adeyanju at the Human Rights Commission’s office in Abuja yesterday, Monday December 23rd, were chanting Sai Baba, a slogan used to praise President Buhari during and after the 2015 and 2019 elections.
Acoording to FFK, he spoke with Deji who is currently being hospitalised and Deji told him that some of the persons who attacked him carried placards with the President’s face on it.

I just spoke to Prince Deji Adeyanu. He told me that as he was about to submit his letter on Omoyele Sowore at the Human Rights Commission in Abuja he was attacked by a 150-strong crowd of young, wild, drug-crazed almajiris shouting “sai Baba” whilst the police and DSS stood by and did nothing to help.
The thugs were carrying placards with Buhari’s face on it and they kept on chanting the Presidents name. He was badly beaten until he fell to the ground and went unconcious. He barely escaped with his life.
Buhari and supporters, hear this and hear it well: beating up opposition members changes nothing. It only strengthens our hand, deepens our resolve, hardens our hearts and swells our ranks.
Finally remember that you will not be in power forever and one day you will be called to account for your wickedness, brutality and tyranny.
My younger brother Deji is a strong and courageous son of Oduduwa and a proud and fearless warrior. He cannot be intimidated or broken and neither shall he die before his time.
He shall stand to the end and continue to fight for the voiceless and the oppressed. He is a Prince of the Kingdom, a leading light of his generation and I am very proud of him”.
