“Just been shot by a police officer, ACP
Eaglessightnews confirmed from sources that the activist sustained an injury from the shot and has been rushed to a hospital for medical treatment. See photo.
Contrarily to this incident the information gathered from leadership news has debunked the shooting of the activist by Nigeria Police. The Nigeria Police Force said the convener of Revolution Now, Omoyele Sowere, was not shot by the police as reported in some sections of the media.
Reaction from a human rights lawyer, Inibehe Effiong, who wrote on Twitter that “the criminal officer is said to be an ACP. I watched Sowore being shot live on Facebook”.
“This is what Nigeria has been turned into under Buhari. They’ve declared war on the Civic Space.”
