Unknown gunmen killed Sowore’s brother

Olajide, the younger brother of Sahara Reporters Publisher and human rights activist, Omoyele Sowore, has been killed.

Sowore confirmed this in a Facebook post on Saturday.

The activist said his brother was killed by suspected herdsmen or kidnappers.

He posted, “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 State 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 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 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!”
