|Ooni, Obasanjo, Fayemi Others React To Fasoranti's Daughter's Murder by Staro: 7:11am On Jul 14|
Ooni of Ife
Meanwhile, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi; former president Olusegun Obasanjo and Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, have called for an end to insecurity in the land. They spoke in separate statements in reaction to the killing.
The Ooni said “Securing lives and property of Nigerians is the primary responsibility of the government. What is happening to us in Yorubaland at the moment if not urgently curtailed by the government may force our people to come with a communal security approach which may not augur well for the unity of this country which we have always laboured for.”
He added that it was a disgusting payback to a man like Pa Fasoranti who continued to live his life for Nigeria’s stability.
On his part, Obasanjo tasked security forces to fish out killers of Olakunrin and end insecurity in the nation.
Obasanjo said, “This is a worrisome development in our polity, especially at a time when all well-meaning Nigerians are preaching tolerance and political accommodation in national politics.
“I must say Nigeria as a whole is diminished by the manner of Funke’s death. We deplore this dastardly act and seize this opportunity to call on governments at all levels to leave no stone unturned in ensuring that our security agents vigorously pursue and find the perpetrators of such heinous crime and make them face the full weight of the law.
“We must together find a solution to all acts of insecurity in the country, particularly acts of banditry, kidnapping, robbery and killing by the suspected Fulani herdsmen.’’
Fayemi condemned the criminal act, saying there was the need for urgent action against the incessant cases of insecurity in the South-West. He described the incident as a tragedy of immense proportion.
He said that the Federal Government would be called upon to do something urgently about the insecurity challenges in the country.
The governor said, “I know Mrs Olakunrin very well. As a matter of fact, she was with me three days ago before heading back to Lagos. It is a personal loss and tragic situation for us and we all own it a duty to tackle this issue headlong to rescue our people from this situation.”
The Pan Niger Delta Elders’ Forum has described the continued attack on Nigerians by Fulani herdsmen as an attempt to break up Nigeria.
The National Secretary of PANDEF, Dr Alfred Mulade, in a statement on Saturday, said the killing of Olakunrin was callous and barbaric, adding that it was more disturbing to note that the onslaught by the herders against law-abiding citizens of Nigeria had become a daily occurrence.
Also, in a separate statement, IYC President, Eric Omare, observed that suspected Fulani kidnappers had taken over the Benin-Ore Expressway, adding that security agencies had kept mute while the onslaught by the herdsmen continued unabated.
“This is one death too many and we say enough is enough. It is on record that for many months, suspected Fulani kidnappers have virtually taken over the Benin to Lagos road and many persons have been victims of their activities.”
YORUBA UNITY FORUM
Besides, the Yoruba Unity Forum and the Afenifere Renewal Group commiserated with Fasoranti while condemning the killing of his daughter.
The ARG challenged the South-West governors to rise up to the occasion of securing the region, saying “it would now seem that the central government’s clinging to central policing has failed woefully in providing Nigerians with the needed security.”
ARG’s National Chairman, Olawale Oshun, and the Assistant National Publicity Secretary, Michael Ogungbemi, spoke in separate statements on Saturday.
The ARG statement read in part, “President Muhammadu Buhari government’s treatment of the murderous excesses of herdsmen with kid gloves is enough fillip for their continued killing of innocent souls, especially in places opposed to their archaic, backward, and crude method of pastoralism.”
According to the YUF, “It feels that, and rightly so too, that President Buhari’s continued emotional attachment to his folks; the Fulanis, to the detriment of the rest of the country, is already the fuel for the eventual arson of the whole country, if unchecked.
Youths, under the auspices of Ondo State Youths Network, who protested against the killing at Fasoranti’s home when the dignitaries came on condolence visits, urged the security forces to apprehend the killers.
Carrying placards with inscriptions such as ‘Enough of these killings’ ‘Akeredolu must act now’, ‘Every human life matters’, ‘These killings must stop, ‘Governor Akeredolu do something”, the youth chanted solidarity songs .
One of the leaders of the group, Tuyi Akintade, said the government must act decisively against the killings and kidnapping by the herdsmen in the state.

All these actions are empty, null and void!
My heart aches and this is so saddening and unbecoming
It's time we all go our separate ways..
Life used to be a sacred thing in the past, but with this Fulani man as our president, killing has been a game, life has been a toy!
If we continue this way, we'll all wake up to nothing but the entire south overthrown by the northerners all armed.
They do not value family, life and property so why won't they kill others?
The North has always been a problem to the south, we can't continue like this, we have our culture, values and ethics but forcing an alien way of life on us is a way to colonize the south, behold they are advancing each day.
I'm a Yoruba guy and I wish we go our separate way!
Life is sweet!
Good morning good people of the South!

We should thread carefully and with caution. What if the perpetrators of these acts were criminals disguised as herders just to scuttle the polity? Unfortunately, how fast and efficient is our security agencies to unravel these evil men!

We need to fish out the killers. Yes, there's insecurity in the country. But I don't think a tribe is responsible for it.
Those folks are nothing but hired assassins.
I don't support blindly supporting a tribe or blindly opposing a tribe. It's naturally anathema to me.

Obj i have a big respect for you.However,i don't think the security agents can do anything in fishing the killers as you requested.Simply because all the security apparatus in Nigeria at the moment are Fulanies.

Nigeria is much deadlier and risky than it was some years ago. The insecurity in the country will gradually hit its peak before the end of this regime. Buhari has failed!

Imoh555:Lol... why so much anger We know cowards in Nigeria and definitely they are not Yorubas. Only cowards allow emotions to put him to unnecessary war.
When Yorubas are ready, Nigeria will cease to exist.

This attack was an assassination by Fulani Herdsmen.
Listen to an eye witness say that the car overturned & was shot to pieces.
You don't attack a crashed car unless it's an assassination.
Buhari & co are trying to deny that the culprits are FULANI HERDSMEN .
If you watch this video, the brother of the murdered lady was told by police that they were fulani herdsmen.
Watch video on Twitter
When they now saw the outcry, now changed it to armed robbers.

......... the death of this woman might have been from any quarter. this is Nigeria trust no one majorly when it turns out to be politics.
it might have been the herdsmen, it might be anyone or group that carried out the attack.
what if the agitators of state police are playing out their script just for us to buy into their scheme? there are so many windows to explore here.
