Olatunji had on Monday confronted the unnamed police officer and his colleagues for assaulting his personal assistant at Abule Egba area of Lagos.
A filmmaker, Lanre Adediwura, confirmed the development on Instagram Tuesday.
He wrote: “I can’t imagine Damola Olatunji had been in police custody since yesterday only for standing against police intimidation. He is currently being taken to Ogba Magistrate court.
“Please well-meaning Nigerians, we need you to get this to the appropriate quarter.
” All we are asking for is freedom for damola olatunji.
“He was only defending a fellow Nigerian Citizen against possible humiliation. He is not a trouble maker.
“His only offence was standing for a Nigerian. Adediwura added
