The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the February 2019 election, Atiku Abubakar, on Friday condemned the killing of Mrs Funke Olakunrin, daughter of the Chairman of Afenifere, Chief Reuben Fasoranti by suspected herdsmen.

Atiku on his Facebook post said the death is one too many, adding that the Federal Government should stem the growing insecurity in the country.

He also called on security agencies to fish out the killers and bring them to book.

He condoled with  Pa Faroranti, his family and members of Afenifere.

Atiku wrote, “I condemn, in the strongest possible term, 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 a speedy and thorough investigation to bring her killers to book and stem the epidemic of insecurity on 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.”
