Olajide, a younger brother of Sahara Reporters Publisher and human rights activist, Omoyele Sowore, is dead.
The activist, who confirmed the incident in a Facebook post on Saturday (today), said his brother was killed by suspected herdsmen.
He described the deceased as an easy going person who made everyone happy, adding that he always took all the blame when they were about to be punished by their father.
“My immediate younger brother, Olajide Sowore was today shot and killed near Okada in Edo state by suspected herdsmen on his way from Igbinedion University in Edo State where he was studying Pharmacy.
“They snuffed out the life of yet another real human being.
“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 lived your life so that everyone could be alright but now you have been assassinated by everything that’s not alright! Saddest day yet. Rest on brother till we meet again”, he wrote.
