Sowore: PDP Condemns Killings, Insists Buhari, APC Have Failed

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the killing of Olajide Sowore, younger brother of former Presidential candidate, rights activist and publisher of Sagara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, by yet to be identified gunmen.

The leading opposition party in the country stated this Sunday in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan.

Recall that the younger Sowore who was a student of Pharmacy at the Igbinedion University, Okada, Edo State, was gunned down on Saturday in the state by men the Sahara Reporters publisher described as “herdsmen/kidnappers”.

The PDP’s statement in full reads:

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) condemns the killing of Olajide Sowore, a student of the University of Benin and younger brother of rights activist, Omoyele Sowore, by suspected gunmen.

The party laments the daily killing of compatriots across the nation, a situation that had turned the country into a killing field where mindless massacre of citizens have become a routine.

Our party insists that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) administration has become overwhelmed, having failed to provide the required leadership to rescue our nation.

The PDP urges our security agencies to step up their efforts to uncover the killers of Olajide Sowore and bring them to justice.
