Policemen and soldiers have barricaded the Lagos office of online news portal SaharaReporters.

The armed agents also prevent anybody from coming in as they shout at those inside to come out.

Despite protests, local and international, against Sowore’s detention, the federal government has refused to grant him bail, having secured a court order to hold him for 9 days while his investigation goes on.

He is detained for terrorism and treason.
