Today, 11/1/2017 at about  15:39hrs, a distress call was
received by the Lagos State Police Command that Mr Omoyele Sowore –
Publisher of Sahara Reporters was being attacked by suspected hoodlums
around Isaac John street, GRA ikeja.

The
police swiftly responded, and upon arrival at the scene contrary to the
report that a robbery attack was taking place, the police met  the duo
of Mr Omoyele Sowore and Mr Lekan Fatodu engaged in a brawl/altercation.
With a view to ascertaining what led to the false alarm of a robbery,
both parties were taken before the Commissioner of Police. 

In
the course of police intervention, it was found out that the brawl is
in connection with an earlier complaint of alleged threat to life,
defamation of character and blackmail made by Lekan against Omoyele.
Both parties were subsequently referred to the State Criminal
Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Panti where the case
has been under investigation.
