Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and PDP’s presidential aspirant in 2019 Presidential election has condemned the alleged killing of Pa Reuben Fasoranti’s daughter by herdsmen.
Atiku, who reacted via his Twitter handle, called on the security operatives to initiate a speedy and thorough investigation to bring her killers to book, and stem the epidemic of insecurity in the region.
“I condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the killing of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, daughter of Chief Reuben Fasoranti, the Chairman of Afenifere. This is one death too many.
“I call on the security services to initiate speedy and thorough investigations to bring her killers to book and stem the epidemic of insecurity in our land. My prayers and deep compassion go to Chief Reuben Fasoranti, his family and the entire membership of Afenifere.
“My family and I stand shoulder to shoulder with you at this trying time, even as we pray for the repose of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin’s soul. Peace must return to Nigeria, by every means possible. Enough of this. Enough of this! -AA”
The deceased was reportedly shot on Friday along the Kajola-Ore road, in Ondo State by suspected herdsmen.
According to a statement signed by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the President prayed that God comforts Pa Fasoranti, and give him the fortitude to bear the loss.
He also directed security agencies to swing into action and bring the perpetrators to justice in the shortest possible time.
