Omoyele Sowore, human rights activist, pro-democracy campaigner, former presidential candidate, and founder of an online news agency Sahara Reporters took to Social Media earlier on today to announce the unfortunate murder of his immediate younger brother, calling it an assassination. No one knows if Olajide Sowore was targeted for murder because of his brother’s political views and actions against the federal government or just another victim of the ongoing criminal activities, terrorism, banditry or armed robbery; sadly, this has become the norm under the current federal government.
May Olajide’s soul rest in peace.
Below is Omoyele’s text about his brother’s demise:
My immediate younger brother, Olajide Sowore was today shot and killed near Okada in Edo state by reportedly herdsmen /kidnappers on his way from Igbinedion University in Edo sate where he is studying Pharmacy.
They snuffed out the life yet another real human being!
Rest In Power, “Dr. Mamiye!”
This act in itself will not delay their day of justice.
I traveled widely with you and our father as a little kid. You were the most loved robust kid I ever first knew. You, Mr. magnet had no enemy!
You, Mr. Sunshine Foundation who made everyone happy.
You, the boy who snuck out his older ones to parties, taking all the blames when our disciplinarian father found out.
You, the guy who was an out-of-the-box thinker who decided school wasn’t for you and created you own genre of music and then turned around to go to school after you almost turned 50!
You lived your life so that everyone could be alright but now assassinated by everything that’s not alright!
Saddest day yet!
