Governor of Ondo State, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has condemned the murder of Mrs Funke Olakunrin, daughter of Afenifere Leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti.
Describing the death of Mrs Olakunrin as “one death too many, Gov Akeredolu emphasized that the killing of the 58-year-old daughter of the Pan Yoruba Socio-political Leader “is unacceptable and condemnable.”
Recall that the deceased was reported to have been shot by suspected Fulani herdsmen in her Land Cruiser SUV within the Ore axis of the Benin-Sagamu expressway.
She was said to be heading to Akure, the Ondo State capital from Lagos when her attackers struck on Friday.
According to the governor, in a statement signed by the Commissioner, Donald Ojogo, “this sad development once again, heightens the level of fear that has pervaded our Nation even as it represents a despicable commentary in all ramifications.
“To say the least, it represents an unenviable turning point, the depth of everything that is evil.”
While condoling with the Afenifere Leader, the statement further read that, “On behalf of the State Executive Council, the Governor sympathizes with our foremost leader and indeed the people of the State over this dastardly act.
“However, the governor wishes to appeal to all and sundry to remain calm and allow the Police to unravel the perpetrators of this murder.
“Already, the Commissioner of Police has been directed to comb all forests of Ondo State to bring to book, these bloodthirsty murderers. There is no hiding place for such in Ondo State.”
