SAHARANEWS – The state security service (SSS) has confirmed that its operatives arrested Omoyele Sowore.



SaharaNews recalls that Mr Sowore, publisher of Sahara Reporters, was arrested in Lagos at early hours of Saturday.



He was taken into custody because he called for a revolution in Nigeria, SSS spokesperson, Peter Afunanya, told journalists in Abuja Sunday afternoon.

Mr Afunanya was unable to say whether or not the SSS has any credible intelligence that confirmed Mr Sowore has the capacity to execute a takeover of government in Nigeria.
