Yoruba Youths Flay Tinubu Over Remarks On Olakurin’s Killing by ijustdey: 12:22pm On Jul 16, 2019
A group, Yoruba Youth Socio-cultural Association (YYSA), has chided the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, for his remarks on the killing of Mrs. Funke Olakurin, daughter of Afenifere leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti.
This comes as the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) urged the former Governor of Lagos State against to desist from “dishing out lies to support anti-Igbo sentiments.”

Besides, the Presidency has urged Nigerians not to politicise the death, pledging that security agencies would spare no effort in apprehending and prosecuting the culprits.

The charge was contained in a statement issued yesterday by presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, in Abuja.

Tinubu had shortly after commiserating with the bereaved senior citizen over the murder by suspected herdsmen, denounced the ethic profiling, asking rhetorically whether Evans, a suspected kidnapper on trial, was a herdsman.

In a statement yesterday in Ibadan by its national president, Olalekan Hammed, YYSA said: “Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu should be told that herdsmen cannot be exonerated from the crime since the police preliminary report says Mrs. Funke Olakunrin was murdered by suspected herdsmen.

“Besides, Mr. Kehinde Fasoranti, one of the sons of Chief Reuben Fasoranti, had also been told by the police in Ore that the way they (attackers) operated was of same fashion with the herdsmen’s.

“Mr. Tinubu should not allow the desperation of 2023 restrain him from saying the truth to authority.

“Someone like him is expected to be bold, courageous and brave enough to defend the Yoruba nation without allowing himself to be blinded by political aspirations.”

The youths further held: “The recent open letter by former President Olusegun Obasanjo is timely and analytical.

“It is true that herdsmen /farmers crises and menace started with the government treating the issue with kid gloves instead of a hammer.


“Buhari should take to Obasanjo’s advice without wasting time because insecurity in Nigeria has already worsened.”

IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, also enjoined the Tinubu to apologise to the Yoruba nation for “misleading them into supporting an ethnic jingoist as president in the general election, as the growing climate of insecurity is the dividends from an inept administration.”

In a statement yesterday by the group’s Director of Media and Publicity, Comrade Emma Powerful, Kanu reminded the powerful Lagos politician that “you cannot sacrifice the blood of your brethren on the shrine of your greed, conceit and unbridled 2023 presidential political ambition.”

He regretted that Tinubu’s utterances only succeeded in doing more harm to the Fasoranti family, by allegedly insulting the memory of their daughter which could be seen as an affront to the dignity of the Yoruba race.

The IPOB leader further accused the ex-governor of allowing “your self-centered avarice and ego to stifle the aspirations and destiny of your people,” even as he maintained that “your Fulani masters will never do for you what you are slavishly doing for them.”

However, a retired commissioner of police, Samuel Adetuyi, has faulted the measures put in place by the Federal Government to combat the prevalent security challenges in the land, stating that “they would not solve any problem.”

He was reacting to the comment by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo during a condolence visit to the Fasorantis that government was reviewing the nation’s security architecture and deploying more police, army and aerial strategies to combat the menace.

Tinubu had also assured that the ongoing recruitment of 10,000 policemen would improve security nationwide.

But Adetuyi declared that the current police structure could not fight crime, adding that the plan to deploy security personnel in the bush was suicidal.

But Deputy Senate President Ovie Omo-Agege yesterday said the National Assembly was willing to provide legislative backing for the deployment of soldiers to tame the challenge as canvassed by Osinbajo.

He dropped the hint while fielding questions from State House correspondents after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House, Abuja.

Besides, Senator Rochas Okorocha has called on Nigerians to unite against insecurity, canvassing stronger community policing and vigilante groups.

The Imo ex-governor, in a statement by his media aide, Sam Onwuemeodo, condoled with Chief Fasoranti over last weekend’s sad incident.

I don't support fulani herdsmen in anyway
but the matter at ground has seriously taken another dimension as many are capitalizing on it..
We should be focus on how to strengthen the security challenges rather attacking one another based on political affiliation on self interest

whether we like it or not this Fulani people have succeeded in dividing us between obasanjo followers and tinubu followers. The next is to conquer. Sadly they have also taken control of our religious elites adeboye, kumuyi etc because of their greed masked in sanctimonious quietness.
We now have to choose between the killings of our people in order to keep tinubu's presidential hopes alive or aligning with OBJ and opt for a conversation that can potentially end this union we strangely love. a dilemma!

This whole fulani something is a big disgrace to all of us

Igbo o
Yoruba o
Hausa o
Ijaw
And every other minority tribe

I mean how long do we continue to tolerate this nonsense

This herdsmen are basically a threat to our lives or that of our family members


How long will buhari continue to handle this nonsense with kid gloves

Was this how the dullard handled ipob that weren't even armed?


Fulani herdsmen have become worst than boko haram and has killed more people than boko haram. Their men and women are heavily armed and even their children are taught how to use ak 47. Guns and ammunitions are available to them in large quantities

Where are they getting it from??

Funny thing is that this tinubu will still be president come 2023 if Nigeria still exist by then. He is ready to sacrifice the country to rig himself in and it will work because the people in this country only knows how to talk and nothing more

His despicable utterances should be condemned outrightly.


By the way, where are those folks that labeled a particular ethnic group as crying more than the bereaved?

Is this group of SE/SS extraction?

Hmm, Nigeria's amalgamation was a scam, sham and not the will of the people.

British coerced us to merge.

Nigeria should be divided or else this is how it will be for a very long time.

It took uncommon courage for Tinubu not to join the bandwagon of accusing 'herdsmen' when there's yet to be conclusive evidence of their culpability in the crime in question. Some people are not really interested in getting to the root of this particular crime for political reasons.
