Nigerian human right activist Omoyele Sowore had earlier called out Ned Nwoko for damaging innocent Nigerian citizens.

In an Instagram post where he expresses his displeasure over the arrest of ‘Jaaruma’ for alleged defamation, Sowore said; “defamation is a civil matter”

He wrote, “It is disheartening that Nigeria Police Force continues to deploy itself to despicable VIP mercenary activities.”
