(Go Down)

Herdsmen under their umbrella body, Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has pushed back claims that they are responsible for the dead of Funke Olakunrin.

Mrs Olakunrin who died on Friday was said to have been killed by herdsmen in Ondo State. She is the daughter of Reuben Fasoranti, leader of Afenifere, a socio-cultural group in the South-West region.

In a statement by its National Secretary, Baba Uthman Ngelzarma, the pastoralist expressed sadness over the incident and called on “security agencies to swing into action, and unravel the perpetrators to bring them to justice in the shortest time possible.”



The group also blasted the media which reported that the perpetrators of the act were herdsmen from Fulani extraction.

Herders are accused as arrowheads of insecurity in the country which has recently witnessed a spike in criminal activities.

“As we express sincere heartfelt condolence to the family of the deceased, we are left in a deep shock on how a section of the media in collaboration with elements in the country that are held bane (sic) on using every opportunity available to them to fuel crisis as they continue the negative profiling of Fulanis for their total annihilation by jumping into a mischievous conclusion that she was killed by herdsmen,” the statement read.


“We strongly condemn this very unprofessional, unpatriotic and callous news reportage patterns that have been conscripted against our people by the section of the media,” the group added.

The State Police Command in the state said armed robbers were the ones who killed the lady.

Meanwhile, the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) has vowed to retaliate the dead of the deceased.

Funke Olakunrin: PDP Condemns Killing, Tasks Buhari, FG To Curb Insecurities

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) condemns in totality the gruesome killing of Funke Olakunrin, daughter of Chairman of Yoruba Socio-cultural group, Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, by yet to be apprehended gunmen.

The PDP also laments the unpardonable lethargy in apprehending Funke’s killers since Friday.

The party describes as heartrending that under the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, our nation has become a killing field and large funeral palour with insurgents, bandits and assassins having a field day waylaying and killing innocent compatriots, especially those making very useful contributions to the development of our nation.

Our party is worried that security agencies are rather engaging in debates over the identity of the killers and hurriedly pointing to a case of abduction even before any extensive investigation has been carried out on the horrific and dastardly act.

The party bewails that the killing of Funke Olakunrin marks yet another national loss occasioned by the failure of the Buhari administration to secure the nation beyond lip service, a development that has emboldened marauders in our country.

The PDP posits that Funke Olakunrin must not die in vain. Our dear nation must not continue to lose her finest and brightest in the hands of bandits. Our party therefore charges the authorities to go beyond condolence messages from Abuja and take concrete steps to apprehend Funke Olakunrin's killers, as well as ensure security of lives in our nation.

The PDP, while condoling Pa Fasoranti, charges the Inspector General of Police, Adamu Mohammed, to take immediate and decisive steps, beyond the lip service of the Buhari administration, to track down the killers without further delay and make them face the full wrath of the law, no matter who they are.
