Omoyele Sowore, the publisher of Sahara Reporters, said he was shot in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city, by a policewoman.


The publisher was allegedly shot during a protest at the Unity Fountain, Abuja.

“Just been shit (sic) by a police officer, ACP Atine at the Unity Fountain in Abuja,” Sowore captioned a tweet that shows a wound on his body, adding that “Let the struggle continue even if they take my life.”
