The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams has expressed suspicion over the killing of Olajide, the younger brother of political activist, Omoyele Sowore, adding that the murder was a reflection of the porous security situation in the country.
Naija News had reported Sowore as announcing that his younger brother was shot dead by suspected herdsmen near Okada town in Edo State on Saturday morning.
Reacting in a statement by his media aide, Kehinde Aderemi, the Aare Onakakanfo urged the police to unravel the true circumstances surrounding the killing and bring the culprits to face justice.
Adams, who is the warlord of Yorubaland, expressed sadness at the occurrence, noting that the killing was a testimony of the protracted security situation in the country.
He said: “The security situation in Nigeria is becoming so worrisome by the day and the country is heading towards a tailspin. It was a reflection of Federal Government’s failure to tackle the security challenges in the country.
“It is only in Nigeria that the government feels comfortable when people are killed by suspected Fulani herdsmen.”
Adams also urged the Federal Government to concentrate on finding solution to the security challenges in the country, warning that any attempt to eliminate Sowore would be resisted by well-meaning Nigerians.
