Sahara Reporters’s publisher, Mr Omoyele Sowore was this night picked up in New York city and taken to Varick street deportation center where he is awaiting expatriation back to Nigeria.
Trouble started for Mr Omoyele Sowore when the sheriff attempted to serve Melaye’s defamation court summons. I his effort to argue with the sheriff, New York City police were called in. Sowore was immediately picked up and taken to the detention center for processing which will lead to his removal from the USA.
Mr Sowore is not a United States’ citizen and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), under President Donald Trump is quick to remove or deport immigrants involved in the most minute of infractions or criminal cases.
At the moment Sahara Reporters’ lawyers are scrambling to get to the detention center to appeal against the deportation of Mr Sowore. They will be making a case that the Nigerians authorities are after the Ondo born publisher for wrong reasons.
Sources close to the Sahara Reporters said that chances are that Sowore’s deportation would take place.
