Sowore, a New Jersey resident, was first arrested in August and despite two court orders for his release, Nigerian security services refused to release him until yesterday. Hours later he was re-arrested. Senator Menendez has been involved in securing Mr. Sowore’s release after his family in New Jersey approached his office about it.
