The African Action Congress has condoled with its National Chairman, Omoyele Sowore, over the death of his immediate younger brother killed by herdsmen on Saturday.
Jide Sowore, a Pharmacy student at Igbinedion University, Okada, was reportedly murdered by killer herdsmen while travelling on the Ore-Benin expressway in the early hours of Saturday, September 4, 2021. “There’s no emphasis in saying it’s a sad day for all of us in the AAC, home and abroad,” the AAC said.
A statement by Femi Adeyeye, AAC National Publicity Secretary, said the victim was slain as a result of the incompetence of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration gross wickedness and incompetence.
The statement reads: “Shall we remind ourselves that many a Nigerian has been slain by the incompetence of the Buhari regime- failure to secure lives and property, and that no one is safe either at home- land, air or on sea including on our roads that are now clear death traps.
“It is so sad that the insecurity ravaging our land is no more a matter of “if”, it is now an issue of “when”- when will it get to us?
“Although we are mourning with our teeth gnashing and our eyes filled with tears, yet we can see clearly and it is to this end we call on the Police and other security agents to investigate the circumstances surrounding this killing and fish out the killers of this young promising Nigerian whose life of service to the country has just been cut short.
“The AAC calls on Nigerians to bond as a matter of expediency, and organize with actions to kick out this regime that has failed woefully on its three major promises- providing security for all Nigerians, reviving the economy and fighting corruption.
“The reality before us today is that if we do not bond, leaving behind our tribal and religious differences to end this terrorist regime, it will end us separately. This is not a bad prayer or wish at all.
“May the gentle soul of our brother and Comrade, Jide Sowore continue to rest in power. “
