BREAKING: Nigerian Police Deny Sowore’s Lawyers Access To See Him In Custody


Sowore was arrested on Thursday afternoon by a team of armed policemen who laid siege at the entrance of court of appeal.

The Nigeria Police Force has denied human rights’ activist, Omoyele Sowore, access to his lawyers, following his illegal arrest in Abuja. 
Sowore was arrested on Thursday afternoon by a team of armed policemen who laid siege at the entrance of court of appeal. 

He was taken to the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) unit, otherwise known as Abattoir, located at Guzape.
Sowore’s lawyers, Abubakar Marshal and Inibehe Effiong, who rushed to the facility were prevented from seeing him.
The police officers attached to the gate asked the lawyers to vacate the premises, claiming that there was no authorisation for them to see him.  
Meanwhile SaharaReporters gathered that the police had insisted that Sowore must write his statement even without his lawyers.
It was also gathered that the activist had not eaten since morning due to the delay in the hearing of his appeal.
