Sahara Reporters’ Omoyele Sowore reveals how he was attacked
News broke today that Sahara Reporters publisher, Omoyele Sowore, was arrested in Lagos after UK based journalist, Lekan Fatodu accused him of alleged criminal defamation, blackmail and threat to life.
After the police “intervened” soon as I was attacked by Lekan Fatodu and his friends in Lagos we were taken to the CP’s office in Lagos. Turns out he was in on this, he pulled out a supposed petition written by Lekan from his hat after that he became very hostile towards me and ordered that we be driven to State CID, at Panti in Lagos. It is very obvious that this was planned between Lekan Fatodu and the police. They offered him unbridled support as he continued attacking me in the presence of the police. I could have been I am familiar with this style of the Nigerian police. We are now being driven to Panti in Yaba res of Lagos
