Reacting to the murder, the governor condemned the killing of Sowore’s brother, saying that the death was a “painful one.”
The governor’s reaction was contained in a message signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Muhammed Onogwu, to mourn Sowore’s death, EkohotBlog reports.
The governor’s statement reads “evil men carrying out such an act of cowardice on a harmless citizen, must be brought to book.” He added that no life should be lost in such a barbaric manner.
Governor Bello stressed further that the 50-year-old Olajide Sowore, a student of Pharmacy at the Igbinedion University, Okada, was making such remarkable feats at that age, hence served as an inspiration and example of a determined individual.
