My immediate younger brother, Olajide Sowore, was killed near Okada in Edo state today by shepherds / kidnappers who reportedly traveled from Igbinedion University in Edo state, where he was studying pharmacy.
They have extinguished life, yet another real human being!
Rest in power, “Dr. Mamiye! “
This act in itself will not delay their day of justice.
I traveled extensively with you and our father as a child. You were the most beloved stout boy I ever met. You, Mr. Magnet, had no enemies!
You, Mr. Sunshine Foundation who made everyone happy.
You, the kid who sneaked his older ones to parties, taking all the blame when our disciplined 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 musical genre and then turned around to go to school after you were almost 50!
You lived your life so that everyone could be okay, but now murdered by everything that is not okay!
Saddest day ever!
