A renowned pay-for-hire thug was apprehended today at the High Court where the Sahara Reporters vs. Saraki proceedings were held.
The thug, who was apprehended by members of the public, stated on camera that he was paid by the publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, to disturb and disrupt the court processes citing Sowore’s fear that he has been in contempt of the court.
Recall that following repeated publications of fake news by Sowore’s Sahara Reporters platform against the Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, the controversial publisher was sued and subsequently ordered to pay N4billion in damages by a High Court sitting in Ilorin.
Initially, Sowore called the ruling a ‘Jankara Ruling’ by a ‘Jankara Judge’, however, since having his accounts frozen by federal authorities in both Nigeria and the United States, he has been forced to face the music.
In the past, several Nigerians have alleged that Sowore and his Sahara Reporters platform have blackmailed them with ‘fake news.’ This is the first time that Sowore’s proverbial chickens are coming home to roost.
