Family Not Aware Of Any Investigation Into Brutal Killing Of My Brother—Activist, Sowore

Human rights activist, Omoyele Sowore, has expressed his gratitude to Nigerians for their condolence messages over the death of his brother, Olajide Sowore. 

Olajide was murdered in cold blood by gunmen suspected to be kidnappers on Saturday in the Okada area of Edo State. 

Before his death, he was a student of Igbinedion University, Okada, where he was studying Pharmacy.

In an appreciation post, Sowore thanked everyone for their support and solidarity.

He, however, noted that despite the noise from Nigerian government officials promising to bring the perpetrators to justice, the family is not aware of any investigation by security agencies. 

He wrote: “Thank you all for reaching out with great love and kind words of consolation, support and solidarity over the tragic but still unexplained death of my dearest brother, Felix Olajide Sowore.

“I send you loads of gratitude from the bottom of my heart and that of my entire family. 

“We should report to the public that despite the noise from Nigerian govt officials promising to ‘apprehend’ my brother’s killers, we are not aware any security agency/ies carrying out rescue operations to free those purportedly abducted or investigating the identity of Jide’s murderers. 

“It is not as if we expect anything from the failed system that took our brother’s life, I feel that I owe you all an update on these matters.
“We will keep the public updated with progress regarding funeral arrangements.”
