Makinde reacts to killing of Afenifere leader’s daughter makes demand



Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde, has condemned the killing of Mrs. Olufunke Olakunrin, daughter of the leader of the Pan Yoruba Socio political organisation, Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti.

He lamented that the death further signified a dark spot in the history of the Yoruba’s renewed struggle to protect its land from invaders.

Makinde, in statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, described the dastardly act as shocking, saddening and despicable.

The governor demanded that the security agencies must get to the roots of the incident.

He commiserated with Pa Fasoranti and the family, praying God to grant succour and comfort to the family.

He described the incident as signifying the “darkest hour of our contemporary history as a nation”, adding that only God could stand by and comfort the family at this time.

Makinde also condoled with Governor Rotimi Akeredolu over the loss.

The Governor insisted that perpetrators must be made to face the full wrath of the law.

He also called on the Yoruba nation to take heart and be strong following Olakunrin’s killing.
