Entertainer and activist, Charly Boy, has admitted he has nothing against Deji Adeyanju, who in a tweet on Wednesday accused him of betrayal.

Mr Adeyanju was recently released from the Kano Central Prison after three months in detention over allegations of murder.

His prosecution is believed to be politically motivated.

On Wednesday, he announced his resignation from the OurMumuDonDo protest movement founded by Charly Boy.

“I no longer have confidence in the leader of the movement, Charly Boy. He betrayed the cause while I was away in prison and compromised with the oppressors,” Adeyanju wrote in his message on Twitter.

Reacting in a phone conversation with, Charly Boy said he has nothing against the younger activist whom he said visited him after returning from prison.

“He has been to my house (in Abuja) after his release. He was even here a couple of days ago.

“Apparently, our dreams are not the same. My reputation means a lot to me and he is free to do as he pleases,” the man born Charles Oputa said.

Charly Boy added that he was not unmindful of Adeyanju’s close relationship with chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“Na now our real work as activists go begin,” he continued in Pidgin English. “We know those who dey really fraternise with politicians. I am not on the side of the oppressors.”
