Omoyele Sowore’s younger brother shot dead

Olajide Sowore, the younger brother of Omoyele Sowore, the publisher of the Sahara Reporters and a human rights crusader, was killed in Edo state.

Olajide was killed today September 4 near Okada in Edo state by “herdsmen /kidnappers,” according to Omoyele, who wrote a tribute to his brother. Olajide was on his way from Igbinedion University in Edo state, where he is studying Pharmacy.

The activist portrayed Olajide as the one who made everyone happy, smuggled out his older siblings to parties, and took all the responsibility when their disciplinarian father found out, recalling how he traveled far with his younger brother and their father.

He added that the deceased was an out-of-the-box thinker who decided school wasn’t for him, created his own genre of music and then turned around to go to school after he almost turned 50.

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!

Omoyele Sowore
