Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi has expressed his administration’s commitment to the development of the education sector as the key to high-level human capital development needed for emancipation of the people.

Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello has condemned the killing of Mr Olajide Sowore, younger brother of former Presidential candidate, Mr Omoyele Sowore.

Sowore was killed on Saturday in Okada, Edo State.

The Governor in a condolences message signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Muhammed Onogwu, commiserated with the Sowore family stating that the death of Mr Olajide Sowore was indeed a painful one.

Governor Bello noted that evil men carrying out such an act of cowardice on a harmless citizen must be fetched out and brought to book adding that no life should be lost in such a barbaric manner.

While he condoled with the immediate family of the deceased, the Governor said the 50-year-old, Mr Olajide Sowore who was a student of Pharmacy at the Igbinedion University, Okada was taking such remarkable feet at that age hence served as an inspiration and an example of a determined individual.

While he prayed for God to give the family the fortitude to bear the loss, the governor tasked security operatives not to leave any stone unturned to unravel those behind such acts of callousness.
