A presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore, has declared that the death of his younger brother, Olajide, will not be vain.
In a Facebook post on Thursday night after Olajide’s burial in the Kiribo area of Ondo State, Sowore wrote: “My brother Olajide Sowore will never die in vain, thank you Nigeria! Though I am shackled, I am not in chains, I refuse to be held down! #RevolutionNow.”
It was earlier reported that the remains of Olajide were laid to rest in the presence of his wife, four kids, family members, friends, and associates.
Sowore, in a Facebook post, also shared photos of the burial with the caption, “My kid brother Olajide Sowore who was brutally murdered by yet-to-be-identified gunmen reportedly referred to as herdsmen/kidnappers on Ore-Benin Road was finally laid to rest today at Kiribo!”
The deceased was a Pharmacy student at the Igbinedion University in the Okada area of Edo State. He was returning from school when he was shot dead by suspected herdsmen on Saturday morning along the Lagos-Benin Expressway.
