Security operatives have arrested Omoyele Sowore, former Presidential hopeful and publisher of Sahara Reporters.
His arrest was confirmed in a statement by a human rights lawyer, who is also his legal counsel, Inibehe Effiong.
Effiong said Sowore was picked up by the police immediately they stepped out of the Appeal Court in Abuja
The statement read, “I just stepped out of the Court of Appeal in Abuja with Omoyele Sowore after our case only for the Police to lay ambush and arrest him outside the Court. He has been taken away (presumably to former SARS Office in Abuja).
The Buhari regime is devoting resources to persecute and witch-hunt an unarmed citizen for demanding a better country while pampering terrorists who are killing Nigerians on a daily basis. This is dictatorship.
“We shall not be intimidated.”
