Omoyele Sowore, a media personality and presidential contender for the African Action Congress (AAC), has refuted allegations that she is a spy for the American Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
On Sunday, November 13, Sowore and three other candidates spoke at a town hall gathering where the allegation was debunked.
The presidential candidate was questioned by a member of the audience at the town hall meeting hosted by Arise TV in association with the Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) about if he was a CIA operative.
In response, Sowore claimed that if he was a CIA spy, President Muhammadu Buhari would have “disappeared” as a result of his detention by DSS agents in Lagos on August 3, 2019.
He added that despite having resided in the US for more than 20 years, he has not yet accepted citizenship.
“I am not a CIA agent, if I was, Buhari would have disappeared from the surface of the earth when he detained me. You cannot do that with CIA agent. I am a Nigerian, I have not even accepted a US citizenship and I have lived there for 20 years.”
