The 27-year-old, according to former presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore was remanded for alleged cyberbullying.


Sowore said the police were misusing their power and colluding with powerful people in the country to oppress others.


This is the second time the critic will be arrested this year.


Earlier in January, he was said to have been arrested after a petition by actress, Tonto Dikeh, over comments made in the late Nigerian singer, Mohbad’s case.


The critic had accused Dikeh and her colleague,  Iyabo Ojo, of ‘chasing clout’ with the late singer’s death.
