The Publisher of Sahara Reporters, Sowore Omoyele have been arrested by the police over a petition filed by one Lekan Falodu.
A photo purported to be from the scene of the arrest has surfaced on the internet.
An activist Lekan Soloki wrote on his Facebook page;
” We are now at CP Office waiting to see him. The guy who spearheaded the attack is Lekan Fatodu, the guy who fronted for Fani Kayode to collect Dasuki Money.”
Another post by the Lekan Falodu reads:
“BREAKING! I just got Sowore Omoyele of Saharareporters arrested for criminal defamation and blackmail and threat to my life and career. I’m sure you guys will remember how Sowore lied against me that I was used as a front to receive 1.7 billion naira of the National Security funds. My refusal to agree to Sowore’s criminal demands and cut from the fictitious money made him to viciously attack my personality on his website. And imagine this is someone I’ve known and I’ve been assisting for almost 20 years. We are still at the police station, and hopefully we be going to the court tomm. More details later.
