Last week, a five-storey building, belonging to Lekki Gardens, collapsed.

This led to the death of 35 people and the arrest of the Managing Director, Richard Nyong.

Using his Instagram page, with a picture of a handcuffed Nyong, Freeze demanded for justice.

“#Justice4All What really is Justice???I have no qualms seeing a young man who committed a crime pay for that crime. Life is sad, before Richard came along, you could not dream of buying a house in LEKKI for 20million naira, his dream was to make choice housing affordable and available. Somewhere down the line mistakes were made and lives were lost! And yes I agree...... Someone must pay! Now my questions;Why is he in handcuffs and remanded in prison when that 'prophet' whose building collapsed and killed more people than Ebola, Lassa fever and this alleged 'LEKKI gardens' put together is walking free??? Why is that prophet not in handcuffs too??? It was even alleged, that he didn't show up in court the last time the courts sat. Is this true??? If it is true, then why is 'remanded' in prison while Mr prophet 'comes from home'??? Is there a special court for 'prophets' or do we have special 'laws' for them???Is our government afraid of prophets???Are the people who lost their lives in the Church less valuable than the people who lost their lives in the LEKKI Gardens saga?My humble advice: should be released to go home and attend hearings from home like the 'prophet'. Or the 'prophet' should be picked up, handcuffed and locked in the same cell with Richard while he attends trial! Or does the change we voted for include turning Nigeria into the African version of George Orwell's 'Animal Farm', where "All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others?"I might not know law and justice, but I definitely know injustice! I appeal to everyone to lend their voice to this and ensure we have 'JUSTICE FOR ALL'Please retweet this hashtag untill we are heard! #Justice4All”

On Friday, March 11, 2016, an Ebute-Metta Chief Magistrate Court ordered Nyong to be kept in Police custody, along with one of the contractors, Odofin Taiwo Henry.

They will be kept for 30 days, pending the conclusion of on-going investigation into the collapse.
