Armed operatives of the Nigeria Police Force have reportedly barricaded the office of Sahara Reporters, an online new publisher.
According to Sahara Reporter, security operatives in three vehicles stormed their Lagos office located at the Ikeja GRA area, shouting “Open the gate! Come outside”.
The policemen stopped everyone from going in and ordered everyone inside the building to go outside.
Omoyele Sowore, the convener of the #RevolutionNow protest who was arrested by the operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) on 3 August, 2019, is the publisher of SaharaReporter.
Sowore who was also a presidential candidate in the February 23, 2019 presidential poll was accused of receiving millions of dollar from foreign collaborators to overthrow the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.
He however denied the charges brought against him by the DSS.
