Afenifere leader Pa Reuben Fasoranti says that he never knew July 12 would be the last day that he would see his daughter, Funke Olakunrin, who was killed along Benin-Ore highway by gunmen.
Concise News had earlier reported that the Yoruba socio-cultural organisation announced the killing of Olakunrin on Friday.
Afenifere spokesman Yinka Odunmakin confirmed that late Olakunrin, 58, was heading to Ore Junction from Akure, Ondo State, when she was attacked.
Fasoranti, who spoke while receiving different dignitaries at his Akure residence, tasked the federal government to check the high rate of crime in the country.
“She came to me around 9 am on Friday to bid me farewell. I never thought I would not see her again,” he said.
“President Muhammadu Buhari has called to commiserate with me. But all I need from the president is to find solutions to these killings in the country.”
