AAC reacts to killing of Omoyele Sowore’s brother

Omoyele Sowore

The African Action Congress (AAC) has condoled with Omoyele Sowore, national chairman of the party, over the death of his brother.

Olajide, the younger brother of Sowore, convener of the #RevolutionNow movement, was murdered on Saturday along the Benin-Lagos highway.

The deceased was a student of Igbinedion University, Okada.

In a statement issued by Femi Adeyeye, AAC national publicity secretary, the party blamed President Muhammadu Buhari for the spate of insecurity in the country, adding that no one is safe whether inside or outside of their home.

“Shall we remind ourselves that many a Nigerian has been slain by the incompetence of the Buhari regime failure to secure lives and property and that no one is safe either at home, land, air or on sea including on our roads that are now clear death traps,” the statement reads.

“It is so sad that the insecurity ravaging our land is no more a matter of “if”, it is now an issue of “when”- when will it get to us?

“Although we are mourning with our teeth-gnashing and our eyes filled with tears, yet we can see clearly and it is to this end we call on the police and other security agents to investigate the circumstances surrounding this killing and fish out the killers of this young promising Nigerian whose life of service to the country has just been cut short.”

The party also called on Nigerians to put aside tribal and religious differences and unite to remove the present government from power.

“The AAC calls on Nigerians to bond as a matter of expediency, and organize with actions to kick out this regime that has failed woefully on its three major promises- providing security for all Nigerians, reviving the economy and fighting corruption,” the party said.

“The reality before us today is that if we do not bond, leaving behind our tribal and religious differences to end this terrorist regime, it will end us separately. This is not a bad prayer or wish at all.”
