"Nigeria must cease its dangerous attacks on freedom of expression" - Another US Senator Speaks on Sowore's Rearrest | bellaNaijaAnother United States Senator has spoken on the rearrest of Omoyele Sowore by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS).

A video showing an alleged DSS agent attempting to arrest him in a courtroom circulated on social media on Friday before the journalist was eventually arrested.

Senator Bob Menendez had called a press conference saying that “there will be consequences” in the US’ relationship with Nigeria if any harm comes to Sowore.

Now, another US Senator, Cory Booker, has released a statement calling for the release of the activist. He wrote on his Twitter:

It’s appalling that NJ journalist Omoyele Sowore was re-arrested in Nigeria hours after his release. This is a shocking affront to the country’s rule of law and Nigeria must cease its dangerous attacks on freedom of expression.
