Minister of State, Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo has reacted to the murder of the immediate brother of Omoyele Sowore, Olajide Sowore.
The activist had on Saturday lamented that his brother was killed “by reported herdsmen/kidnappers on his way from Igbinedion University in Edo State where he was studying Pharmacy.”
Reacting in a statement titled, “Commiseration on the reported killing of your brother”, Keyamo expressed sadness over what he described as the “senseless killing” of Sowore’s younger brother.
“It is quite sad and regrettable that such a young man would be cut down in his prime by criminal elements,” the Senior Advocate lamented.
However, Keyamo assured that he and other patriotic Nigerians would pressurise law-enforcement agents to get the killers arrested.
“Myself and other compatriots would be pressurising the law-enforcement agents to track down these killers without delay and bring them to justice. This, and many others around the country, must be checkmated with all arsenals at our disposal,” he added.
He urged Sowore “to take heart and remain committed to helping the nation find a lasting solution to some of these numerous challenges.”
