The Lagos State Police Command has arrested Sahara Reporters’ publisher, Omoyele Sowore, over alleged money laundry publication in which a London base Journalist and Checkout International Magazine’s publisher, Lekan Fatodu, was indicted of assisting Nigerian politicians in moving money out of the country.
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.”
But in a short interview with THE NATION, Sowore said: “I was attacked in Lagos by some boys of a former minister. We are on our way to Panti Police Station. “
