The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has condemned the killing of Olajide Sowore, the younger brother of Sahara Reporters’ publisher, Omoyele Sowore, by gunmen suspected to be herdsmen.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, the governor said, the gruesome murder of Olajide, further depicts the worsening security situation, across the country.
He expressed the hope that security agencies will apprehend those responsible for the murder of the young man, who was a pharmacy student at the Igbinedion University.
Governor Ortom prayed that God grants the soul of Olajide Sowore eternal rest and his family the fortitude to bear the painful loss.
