Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has described the killing of Mrs Funke Olakunrin by herdsmen as unacceptable.
In a statement on Saturday, Akeredolu said: “On behalf of the State Executive Council, the governor sympathizes with our foremost leader and indeed the people of the State over this dastardly act.
“This sad development once again heightens the level of fear that has pervaded our nation, even as it represents a despicable commentary in all ramifications. To say the least, it represents an unenviable turning point, the depth of everything that is evil, ” he said.
The governor urged the security agencies to immediately spring into action and bring the killers to book.
Akeredolu sued for peace while asking everyone aggrieved by the death of Olakunrin to remain calm and let the law take its full course.
“The governor wishes to appeal to all and sundry to remain calm and allow the Police to unravel the perpetrators of this murder.
“Already, the Commissioner of Police has been directed to comb all forests of Ondo State to bring to book, these bloodthirsty murderers. There is no hiding place for such in Ondo State,” he said.
