Gunmen suspected to be kidnapper-herdsmen have reportedly killed Mr. Olajide Sowore, younger brother to pro-democracy activist and publisher of SaharaReporter online newspaper, Omoyele Sowore.
It was gathered that the incident occurred on Saturday morning near Okada in Edo State while he was returning from Igbinedion University where he was a student of pharmacy.
A check on the verified Facebook page of Omoyele confirmed the story wherein the human right activist cum publisher in what looked like a tribute said; “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 travelled 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 your 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 is not alright. Saddest day yet” he concluded.
Efforts to reach the spokesman of Edo State Police Command as at press time did not yield result as his phone line was not going through.
