Olajide Sowore, the immediate younger brother of Omoyele Sowore, a human rights activist and Founder of SaharaReporters, has been shot dead by suspected herdsmen/kidnappers in the Okada area of Edo State.

Olajide was ambushed while returning from Igbinedion University where he was studying Pharmacy.

Announcing the sudden death on his Facebook page, Omoyele eulogised his murdered brother.

“This act in itself will not delay their day of justice,” he said. “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!”

Omoyele expressed sadness that his brother who “lived his life so that everyone could be alright” had now been “assassinated by everything that’s not alright”!
