The candidate of the People Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 presidential election, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has condemned the brutal murder of the daughter of the leader of The epic pan-Yoruba sociocultural group, Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, by suspected militant herdsmen along Ore-Lagos Expressway.
In a flurry of tweets, Atiku expressed pain and demanded for a thorough investigation into the dastardly murder in the following words:
“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!”
