Human rights’ activist, Omoyele Sowore, has scolded Nigerian government officials and security agencies for failing to search for and find the killers of his younger brother, Felix Olajide Sowore.
Olajide was murdered in cold blood by gunmen suspected to be kidnappers two Saturdays ago in the Okada area of Edo State.
Before his death, he was a student of the Igbinedion University, Okada, where he was studying Pharmacy.
Sowore who took to his verified Facebook page on Thursday described the politicians and law enforcement agents as “hypocritical.”
“My kid brother, Olajide Sowore was buried a week ago, after he was killed on his way from school on Ore-Benin road by yet-to-be-identified assassins; hypocritical politicians and security agents were falling over themselves claiming they will find his “killers,” but we know you and your people murdered him! #RevolutionNow #BuhariMustGo,” the activist wrote.
Sowore had last week thanked everyone for their support and solidarity.
“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 arrangement,” Sowore had said.
The late Olajide was buried in Kiribo community, Ese-Odo Local Government Area of Ondo State in the presence of his wife, four kids, family members, friends and associates.
