The Centre for Anti-Corruption and Open Leadership, CACOL has condemned the violence unleashed by suspected thugs and hirelings of Senator Bukola Saraki on sympathizers of Sahara Reporters at hearing of the case between the media organization and the Senate President in Ilorin, Kwara State on Thursday.
An Ilorin High Court judge, Justice Adeyinka Oyinloye had in June this year slammed a N4 billion judgment against the Publisher of the popular online newspaper, Omoyele Sowore, over some stories published last year by the medium against Saraki.
In what Sahara Reporters describes as ‘Jankara’ (backdoor) arrangement, Saraki through his lawyer, asked and got for the intervention of the court following the publication of series of libelous stories against him. Both Sowore and Sahara Reporters were joined as defendants in the suit marked as KWS/23/2017.
