The Convener of #RevolutionNow Movement and human activist, Omoyele Sowore has been barred from attending his younger brother, Olajide Sowore funeral.
Sowore revealed on his Facebook page on Monday morning that his late brother Olajide Sowore will be buried on Thursday at our hometown, Kiribo in Ese-Odo Local Government Area in Ondo State.
Olajide Sowore, a Pharmacy student of Igbinedion University, Okada, IUO in Edo State, was shot dead on Saturday morning in Isiuwa Community, Okada, Benin-Lagos highway, sparking outrage among Nigerians.
The activist stated he would have love to attend the Ceremony because the Nigeria government had restricted his movement to the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja.
Recall that federal high court in Abuja in October 2019 granted a N100 million bail to Omoyele Sowore with Olawale Bakare, his co-defendant, on a 7-count charge of felony preferred against them by the Nigeria government.
His movement was restricted to Abuja after he was arrested by operatives of Department of State Security Service (DSS) in Lagos State and arraigned before justice Ijeoma Ojukwu in Abuja.
According to him, “My dear brother Olajide Sowore will be buried on Thursday at our hometown, Kiribo in Ese-Odo LGA in Ondo state. I won’t be able to attend his burial because the despicable Muhammadu Buhari regime has restricted me to the Federal Capital of Thieves, Abuja”.
