Festus Keyamo, Minister of State for Labour and Employment, has vowed to be on the toes of security agents to ensure they arrest the killers of Olajide, the younger brother of Omoyele Sowore, convener of the #RevolutionNow movement.
Keyamo said this in a condolence letter to the activist on Saturday.
Olajide was shot and killed near Okada on the Lagos-Benin Expressway in Edo State on Saturday, according to Sowore in a Facebook post.
Consoling Sowore, who is also the publisher of Sahara Reporters, Keyamo urged the renowned activist to take heart and remain committed to helping the nation find a lasting solution to the challenges confronting the nation.
The letter: “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,”
