Sahara report publisher, Omoyele Sowore says police said he was arrested for defaming Regina Daniel’s husband, Ned Nwoko.
The media personality wrote on Facebook;
Released from Nigeria Police Force idiotic arrest and detention. They claimed I defamed a criminal, Ned Nwoko! Useless people.
In another post, Sowore added;
Yesterday I was arrested and detained by @nigeriapoliceforce for what they claimed was “criminal defamation” of one @princenednwoko. I kept asking the police team how it is that anyone could defame a person without character or integrity? NO ANSWER! They kept asking me to write a statement, when I refused they opted to detain and then quickly released me because I insisted that the @nigeriapoliceforce had become a disgraceful national institution that has totally sold its soul. The @nigeriapoliceforce has become a despicable mercenary unit for Nigerian VIPs and this is most appalling.
@princenednwoko and his likes have always deployed the police to carry out a wide variety of illegal and criminal repressive activities including the recent illegal detention of @jaruma_empire. My real crime is being a Nigerian. However, everything must be URGENTLY done to end this era of impunity in Nigeria.
