On December 6, the Department of State Security (DSS) stormed into an Abuja courtroom and illegally detained journalist Omoyele Sowore. The episode is deeply disappointing to American friends of Nigeria who are invested in that country’s democratic trajectory.

The episode unfurled in full view of national and international media, dragging Nigeria’s international reputation through the mud.
