Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, daughter of the National leader of the pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, Chief Reuben Fasoranti was killed on Friday, by some gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen.
According to a source, Olakunrin was killed along the Ore-Shagamu Expressway at Kajola Village in Odigbo Local Government Area of the state during an armed robbery.
The source said the deceased was on her way to Ondo town for a ceremony when the incident happened.
In reaction to the tragic news, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2019 election, Atiku Abubakar, condemned the killing of Fasoranti’s daughter, urging the Federal Government to fish out the perpetrators and bring them to book.
The Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, also kicked against the murder of Olakunrin.
In a statement issued by the state Commissioner for Information, Mr. Donald Ojogo, the governor said, “the state commissioner of police had been directed to comb all forests of Ondo State to bring to book, the bandits.
‘There is no hiding place for such in Ondo State.”
