Sowore Bags Nomination for Prisoner of Conscience Award

After suffering at the hands of the Department of State Security (DSS), Omoyele Sowore was released. He remained in the custody of the DSS for many months despite the bail granted by competent courts in Nigeria, he was held in custody.

Many people still believe that it was the intervention of the American government and the recent human rights ranking in which Nigeria performed poorly that forced the Nigerian government to authorize his release.

It is barely 3 days after Sowore's release and sources say that he has been nominated for a Prisoner of Conscience award in the United States of America because he was imprisoned for calling for a revolution in Nigeria.

Sowore is the founder of Shara reporters an investigative journalism company that throws lights on corruption issues and human rights.
