The former lawmaker representing Kaduna Central Senatorial district, Shehu Sani, has reacted to the arrest of SaharaReporters publisher, Omoyele Sowore.
Recall that the former Presidential candidate was arrested alongside other activists during a protest calling for good governance on Friday.
SaharaReporters had claimed that police operatives attacked and arrested the protesters during a peaceful procession to mark the New Year in Abuja.
Sani in a post on his Twitter account described Sowore’s arrest as unhelpful to the nation’s image.
“The case of @YeleSowore; it’s unhelpful to the nation’s image and its constitutional democracy when peaceful protesters are treated in the most cruel and uncivilized manner by the state apparatuses.”
“The new year’s door is opened with a hammer instead of the key,” Sani tweeted.
