Sahara Reporters’ publisher, Omoyele Sowore, has just been arrested by the Lagos state police command for alleged criminal defamation, blackmail and threat to London based journalist and Checkout International Magazine’s publisher, Lekan Fatodu's life and career.



Omoyele Sowore is accused of publishing an alleged money laundry publication in which Lekan Fatodu, was indicted of assisting Nigerian politicians in moving money out of the country.

Sowore was arrested at his house in Lagos and moved to area F at Ikeja on Wednesday after Fatodu, who lodged the complaint to police, received tip about the Sahara reporters’ boss appearance in the state and reported to nearby police station for his immediate arrest.

  1. Cos you called police first doesn't mean you are right or the accused is guilty. If not for our police that make a simple arrest look like the worst crime. This is a civil matter and not criminal. So Mr tweeter, stop forming what you are not
