Sowore raises alarm, says ‘police preparing phony charges against me’

By Olaolu Oladipo, Lagos
The Publisher of a prominent online blog, Saharareporters, Mr. Omoyele Sowore has raised an alarm, saying the police is preparing a phony charge against him with the intent of detaining him.
According to Sowore in a post on his facebook page on Thursday, the Police Commissioner in charge of the state, Mr. Fatai Owoseni is acting a script and that his (Sowore’s ) bursh with his traducer, Lekan Fatodun was just a smokescreen.
“It has come to my notice that the Lagos Commissioner Of Police is preparing phony charges against me. They plan to arraign in court and get me detained in prison.
“Again, as I mentioned in my last post, this attack on me was well planned by the police, Lekan Fatodu was just used as a smokescreen.”
“My attack by Fatodu was organized with the police, but as they were unable to arrest me directly, he was given the cover to carry out an attack that would give the police their needed tonic to take vengeance on me. The situation wasn’t better when I was hurled before Lagos CP, Mr. Owoseni and later, Frank Mba, who started a winding story claiming it was a messy case.” Sowore wrote.
On the circumstances of his arrest and eventual release, Sowore wrote, “I was asked to sign for my bail on Self Recognizance, but I declined, insisting I had not been arrested by the police and were that the case, that I preferred to be booked and shown an arrest warrant.
“After a short argument, I was let go without signing a bail bond, but was asked to return to the Panti Police Station on Thursday at 2p.m.”
