In 2001 when Obasanjo was in power, the police arrested Adams, then National Coordinator of the Odua Peoples Congress (OPC). He was taken into custody more than one year after former Commissioner of Police in Lagos, Mike Okiro, declared him wanted for the alleged murder of Afolabi Amao. Amao was the Divisional Police Officer of Bariga police station in Lagos.
Adams was also accused of culpability in violent ethnic clashes in the South-West. Authorities insisted the OPC played a major role. He, who still has a huge followership in Yorubaland, was at different times remanded in prisons in Lagos, Abeokuta and Abuja, the nation’s capital.
