Social media critic, Martins Vincent Otse, popularly called Verydarkman has regained freedom from police custody in Abuja.

The Abuja-based rights activist and lawyer, Deji Adeyanju confirmed his release on Sunday.

The 27-year-old Nigerian has been in the eye of the storm in the past few days.

Otse was remanded in police custody for days for alleged cyberbullying according to former presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore.

But Sowore noted that the police were hiding under the Cybercrime Act to detain Otse.

Confirming his release on Sunday, Adeyanju tweeted: “After 5 days of back and forth, we have secured VDM’s release. Thank you to everyone that made this happen especially, SOWORE, Kefiano & VDM’s wonderful lawyers.”

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.
