Sowore arrested by the Police over alleged threat to life

The Lagos State Police Command has arrested Sahara Reporters’ publisher, Omoyele Sowore, over alleged threat to life on Checkout International Magazine’s publisher, Lekan Fatodu.

Sowore was arrested at his house in Lagos and moved to area F at Ikeja on Wednesday after Fatodu, lodged complaint to police.

The Police got a tip off that Sowore was in the state and stormed his house for his immediate arrest.

His arrest followed a complaint by one Lekan Fatodu, who accused him of defamation of character. In a tweet, Fatodu said: “I just got Sowore Omoyele of Saharareporters arrested for criminal defamation, blackmail and threat to my life and career.”

Findings revealed that Fatodu is also the publisher of “Check it Out Magazine.”

Reacting, however, Sowore said, “I was attacked in Lagos by some boys of a former minister. We are on our way to Panti Police Station.”
