Sowore files lawsuit against two police officers


Former presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore, has filed a lawsuit against two police officers, CSP Altine Hyelhira Daniel and the Divisional Police Officer of the Federal Secretariat Police Station.

Sowore made this known in a statement on Friday, where he said he decided to sue the officers for injustices meted out on him.

The statement read, “On May 31, 2021, a Nigeria police force officer, CSP Altine Hyelhira Daniel, directed by the Muhammadu Buhari regime shot me at close range with a riot gun at the Unity Fountain in Abuja. Soon as she carried out the dastardly act, she ran away with the RRS police contingent under her command,”

“Today, I took a decision for the sake of posterity to file a lawsuit against her and the police authorities at the Federal High Court in Abuja.”

He also alleged that another police officer whom he did not name pointed a gun at him as he carried out a violent arrest, according to The Punch report.

“Also, on July 26th 2021, another police officer, the Divisional Police Officer of the federal secretariat police station and his Divisional Crime Officer who violently arrested me while pointing a gun at me for attending Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s trial at the federal high court in Abuja.

“These police officers must be brought to justice or justice brought to them,” he added.
