Former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, says the killing of Mrs Funke Olakunrin, daughter of Chief Reuben Fasoranti, leader of Afenifere, by herdsmen is worrisome.

Obasanjo in a commiseration letter to the Fasoranti family bemoaned the incessant kidnap and killings by herdsmen in the country while calling the government and other stakeholders to find a lasting solution to the country’s increasing level of insecurity.

The ex-President said, “I received, today, the tragic news of the death of your beloved daughter, Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, who was killed by some suspected Fulani herdsmen.

“This is a worrisome development in our polity, especially at a time when all well-meaning Nigerians are preaching tolerance and political accommodation in national politics. I must say Nigeria as a whole is diminished by the manner of Funke’s death.

“As you mourn the tragic loss of our very dear Funke, please be assured of the sympathy and profound sorrow of many others like me who are saddened by the manner of her demise, especially as she still had a lot to contribute to the nation and her family to which she was highly devoted.”
