Emotions ran high yesterday over the killing of Afenifere leader’s daughter, Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, along Benin/Ore Expressway by suspected herdsmen last Friday.
The father of the deceased, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, who was devastated by the incident lamented that the attack happened when he is yet to come to terms with the death of another daughter of his.
The nonagenarian, who said these at his residence in Akure, however, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to stop the spate of killings in the country.
Sounding emotional, he said: “Funke came to bid me farewell around 9 am on Friday only for me to learn that she was killed by assailants around 2 pm on the same day. She came at 9 am to bid me farewell. I heard in the evening that she is no more. President Muhammadu Buhari called me this morning to commiserate with me.
“What I want is for President Muhammadu Buhari to stop these killings. Buhari should stop these killings, I am yet to come to terms with my daughter’s death.’’
Funke, 58, the second daughter of the 94-year-old Afenifere leader and mother of two girls was killed by suspected herdsmen at Kajola in Odigbo Council Area of Ondo State. (Vanguard)
