A mother of seven-month-old baby narrated on Friday how her husband was taken away by 20 military men in uniform on Friday morning, November 13, 2020.
The woman identified as Titilayo Omioye Adeyeun, is a resident of Bassa community in Abuja.
She said her 30-year-old spouse, Imoleayo Micheal Adeyeun, has not been seen or heard since he was taken a week ago.
Titilayo disclosed that her husband had participated in the #EndSARS protests last month.
It was reported that Imoleayo tweeted during and after the demonstrations and his last tweet was at 12:25am on November 13, 2020.
His Twitter handle @imoleayomichael, “I’m awake and fine at the moment. But I don’t know what awaits me as a Nigerian youth. To be alive is no longer guaranteed in my fatherland. We can only be hopeful to survive each day as it comes. #EndSARS #LagosMassacre,” who prided himself as the ‘Emir of Abuja’, had tweeted a day after the Lekki shootings on October 20, 2020.
Titilayo said, “Last week Friday around 2:30am, we were at home and we heard strange voices from the room. We peeped from the window and saw that we were surrounded by men in military uniform.
“We tried to blow the whistle to alert the neighbours but we were told not to do that, that they were there for questioning. So, we opened the door for them and they came inside our sitting room.
“The men in military uniform were outside while the others who wore black vests and bulletproof shields came inside. They were about 20 in total.
“They came into the living room and asked for my husband’s phone. The next thing, they asked me to go into the room. They also asked my husband’s mom to also go into the room. I have a seven-month-old baby and she had come to help me nurse my baby.
“The two of us were in the room. So, I didn’t know what they discussed with my husband. I emerged from the room and saw that my husband was dressing up to follow them. I asked so many questions as to where they were taking him to and what he had done. But nobody said a word. That was how they took my husband away.”
Titilayo said she tried to trail the military personnel but was threatened and forced to return home.
“I tried to follow them but they asked me to go back otherwise they will shoot at me. Since then, I have not seen my husband, he has not called and nobody has called me to tell me about his whereabouts.
“He was involved in the #EndSARS protest. He tweeted about it just like every other person who supported the campaign. He also attended the protest physically,” she added.
