Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu said the killers of Mrs Funke Olakunrin, daughter of the National Leader of the Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, must be apprehended and made to face the law.
Concise News understands that governor Akeredolu made the declaration while reacting to the killing of Mrs Olakunrin by suspected gunmen on Friday, July 12.
The State Governor tasked security agencies in the country to ensure that the perpetrators must face the law quickly.
Akeredolu in a statement issued by the commissioner for Information and Orientation, Donald Ojogo, charged the security agencies to the task, adding that ”’This is one death too many. It is unacceptable and condemnable.”
Akeredolu said: “this sad development once again, heightens the level of fear that has pervaded our nation even as it represents a despicable commentary in all ramifications.”
“To say the least, it represents an unenviable turning point, the depth of everything that is evil,”
“On behalf of the State Executive Council, the Governor sympathizes with our foremost leader and indeed the people of the state over this dastardly act,” he added.
According to The Nation, the governor urged all and sundry to remain calm and allow the Police to unravel the perpetrators of the murder.
