The Sahara Reporters founder was reportedly shot by a female police officer at the Unity Fountain in Abuja, a human rights lawyer, Inibehe Effiong, wrote on Twitter.
He added that the 50-year-old sustained injuries and has been rushed to the hospital for medical treatment.
"The criminal officer is said to be an ACP. I watched Sowore being shot live on Facebook.
