The leader of the outlawed group, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has called on the Yorubas to see the killing of Funke Olakunrin, the daughter of Afenifere chairman, Pa Reuben Fasoranti as “another wake-up call.”
Concise News had earlier reported that the Yoruba socio-cultural organisation announced the killing of Mrs Olakunrin by suspected herdsmen on Friday by the Afenifere spokesman, Yinka Odumakin.
Odunmakin confirmed that late Mrs Olakunrin, a 58-year-old woman, was heading to Ore Junction from Akure, Ondo State when she was attacked and shot by some suspected herdsmen.
The statement reads: “We have confirmed the death of Mrs Funke Olakunrin (58), daughter of our leader, Chief Fasoranti.
“Eyewitness accounts say she died of gunshots from Fulani herdsmen who shot her at Ore junction in Ondo State earlier today.
“She was coming from Akure when the armed Fulani herdsmen came from the bush to attack her and other vehicles.
“Her domestic staff in the car with her also sustained gunshots.
“This is one death too many and a clear we-can-take-it-no-more death,” the spokesperson of the Afenifere group said on Friday.
The IPOB reacting to the killing in a statement issued by Amaka Ekwo, his social media handler, Kanu said: “The brazen terror attack on Yoruba soil by Fulani terrorists must not go unanswered. Let the murder of the daughter of Afenifere Chairman, Funke Fasoranti Olakunrin be another wake-up call.”
