Former Presidential Candidate of the People's Democratic Party PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has joined in condemning the recent attack meted against the activist, Deji Adeyanju, who was brutalized by unidentified persons reported to be working for the government.
In a statement via his verified Twitter account, the former Vice President warned that "without the rule of law, there can be no rule at all."
He called on the government to work in an effort to protect those whose views are contrary. "Govt must be seen to be working to protect those who hold contrary views."
However, Atiku condemned the act perpetrated against Adeyanju and urged that the "perpetrators of the brutality against the activist, Deji Adeyanju, must be brought to book. Their act stands condemned," he said.
Recall that Adeyanju staged a protest in front of the headquarters of the National Human Rights Commission to canvass for obedience to a court order to release Omoyele Sowore who was rearrested by the DSS.
However, the activist got more than he bargained for when he was attacked and beaten to a pulp by people believed to be following orders from the Buhari administration.
