Oluga Abiola, a recent Maths graduate from the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, took to the social media platform X to share his ordeal after being wrongfully arrested and branded a cultist by the police. According to Abiola, he was standing in front of his father's house on February 4, 2023, when he witnessed police officers arresting young men in his neighbourhood. Despite being innocent and merely chatting with a friend on his phone, Abiola was falsely accused by one officer of recording the raid on his phone and was subsequently arrested.

He was taken to the Ibarra Police Station in Ogun State, where he was unjustly detained for three days without the opportunity for bail. Abiola expressed his shock and dismay at being labelled a cultist by the police without any investigation conducted. Moreover, he revealed that the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the Ogun Police Command published his name in national newspapers, further tarnishing his reputation.

During his detention, Abiola faced threats from the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of the Ibarra division, who promised to make his life unbearable. Abiola vehemently denied belonging to any cult group and emphasized that he is simply a recent graduate awaiting the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).

In response to this injustice, Abiola called for intervention from the Inspector General of Police and the Governor of Ogun State. He demanded accountability for the actions of the DPO and sought legal representation to pursue justice. Abiola stressed the importance of a public apology in national newspapers to rectify the damage done to his reputation.

Abiola also highlighted the plight of others unjustly arrested who he encountered during his time in detention. Nigerians rallied behind Abiola, condemning the police for arresting innocent people and branding them as criminals. They called for reforms to prevent similar instances of police brutality and injustice in the future.
