Human rights activist and publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, has been arrested by the police on Thursday in Abuja.

“As at the time of releasing this statement that he is currently at the dreaded SARS unit called ‘Abattoir’ and men from that station were the ones who carried out the arrest.
“We are monitoring these events and we can assure all members that these recurring illegalities and attacks won’t be allowed to stand. Specific reason(s) for his arrest remain sketchy at this time.” He said.
Adeyeye said the activist was taken to the former Special Anti Robbery Squad, infamously called Abattoir, and that no reason was given for the arrest.
