President General of Ohanaeze, Nnia Nwodo

Ohanaeze Ndigbo, an apex Igbo socio-cultural group, has said that the inability of security operatives to disarm and prosecute armed Fulani herdsmen has given credence to the story of collusion.

The group said this while reacting to the Friday murder of Funke Olakunrin, daughter of Fasoranti, Afenifere leader.

Olakunrin was shot dead on her way to Lagos from Akure, Ondo state capital, by suspected kidnappers who attacked her vehicle.

In a statement signed by Nnia Nwodo, president general of Ohaneze, it said that this latest murder is capable of throwing our country into a break down of law and order

The statement read thus: “The continuous rampaging, plunder, rape, kidnapping and murder of innocent Nigerians by armed Fulani herdsmen have climbed to a most worrisome crescendo,” the statement read.

“The inability of our security forces to disarm and prosecute these criminals gives credibility to a growing story of collusion.

“Recently, the British high commission in an advisory to British citizens in Nigeria declared 24 of our states unsafe. In the midst of these killings, their parent organisation has the effrontery to give ultimatums to the president of Nigeria to rescind his unpopular suspension, instead of cancellation of his RUGA development policy.

“Such inciting, provocative and treasonable outbursts have only been greeted by advice that they should respect the Presidency and an unrelenting resolve to force Nigerians to accommodate such murderers in their homes under a policy that violates our constitution and all laws and court judgments relating to land use administration.

“Ohanaeze Ndigbo warns that this latest murder is capable of throwing our country into a break down of law and order. The hasty conclusion by the federal government that she was killed by armed robbers and not the suspected herdsmen who are known to have laid siege on all parts of the country perpetrating acts of banditry and killings further exacerbates the already tense situation.”

The group offered their condolences to the Fasoranti family, and called on eminent leaders, to go beyond party affiliation and join hands to find ways tackle to this lawlessness.
