Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, the daughter of Pa Reuben Fasoranti, the leader of the Afenifere Yoruba group, has reportedly been murdered by suspected herdsmen.
According to Yinka Odumakin, the spokesman for the pan Yoruba group, who confirmed the sad news, he said she was killed while heading to Ore junction from Akure, Ondo state.
“We have confirmed the death of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin (58), daughter of our leader, Chief Fasoranti. Eyewitness accounts say she died of gunshots from Fulani herdsmen who shot her at Ore junction in Ondo State earlier today.
“She was coming from Akure when the armed Fulani herdsmen came from the bush to attack her and other vehicles. Her domestic staff in the car with her also sustained gunshots. This is one death too many and a clear we-can-take-it-no-more death.”
