Omoyele Sowore, the Human Rights activist and presidential candidate of African Action Congress, AAC, has made a fresh accusation against the government.
He accused the Federal Government of having a hand in the death of Olajide Felix Sowore, his younger brother.
Felix was brutally murdered a year ago by unknown gunmen.
One year after his brother’s death, Sowore said events following his brother’s death pointed to the Government.
In a series of tweets via his verified twitter handle, Sowore wrote:
“A year ago, my immediate younger brother Olajide Felix Sowore was brutally cut down by forces undoubtedly connected to the Muhammadu Buhari regime.
“I say it without hesitation that events following his brutal murder points to State complicity.
“Upon his gruesome murder our family made several efforts to resolve his murder by cooperating with the Nigeria Police Force, despite several meetings and phone conversations nothing concrete was done to unravel his killers except the police trying to cajole the family to bury him without carrying out an autopsy.”
“Shortly after his burial, the Police presented photos of two young men they alleged were “Fulani herdsmen/kidnappers” they arrested in a forest. They stated that these men had “confessed” to killing my brother during a kidnapping operation at an abandoned Police check point near Benin City.
“They promised to commence prosecution in two weeks, that was in October 2021. We never heard back from the Nigeria police again”, he said.
He said he would ensure that justice is served.
“However, we remain committed to ensuring that his death will not be in vain and that the conditions that permit the unconscionable termination of life by dark forces propelled by impunity, incompetence and complicity in Nigeria would be wiped out during our time; as a result, those responsible for his murder should not rejoice. Justice will prevail no matter how long it is delayed, he concluded.
