Minister of state for labour and employment Festus Keyamo has vowed to see to the arrest of Olajide Sowore, younger brother of a former presidential candidate Omoyele Sowore.
Mr Sowore had said in a Facebook post on Saturday that his brother was killed by suspected herdsmen operating as kidnappers.
According to him, the deceased was killed on his way from Igbinedion University in Edo State.
In a brief message to Sowore, Mr Keyamo said, “I read with deep sadness the reports on the senseless killing of your younger brother, Mr. Jide Sowore, a student of pharmacy at Igbinedion University, Okada, in Edo State, this morning. It is quite sad and regrettable that such a young man would be cut down in his prime by criminal elements.
“Myself and other compatriots would be pressurising the law-enforcement agents to track down these killers without delay and bring them to justice. This, and many others around the country, must be checkmated with all arsenals at our disposal.
“I urge you to take heart and remain committed to helping the nation find a lasting solution to some of these numerous challenges.”
