Yinka Odumakin, the spokesman for the Afenifere Yoruba group, has called on the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) to fish out the killer of Mrs Funke Olakunrin, daughter of its leader, Chief Rueben Fasoranti.

Odumakin made the disclosure on Sunday after a closed-door meeting at the Akure home of Fasoranti.

“It is now over two months that Mrs Olufunke Olakunrin, the daughter of Afenifere leader, Chief Reuben Fasoranti, was murdered around Ore in Ondo State and we are compelled to speak out over the lackadaisical attitude of the police over the gruesome assassination.

“The younger brother of the deceased, Kehinde Fasoranti, had stated openly a day after the incident that the police in Ore told him his sister was killed by Fulani herdsmen when he went to collect her body the day she was killed and challenged the police to bring out the statement he wrote at their station.

“They have not contradicted him till date.

“The first sign we got that there was no attempt to launch any serious investigation into the murder was when the car in which she was killed was released to the family from Ore police station the day after the murder without any forensic investigation into the most prized evidence at the scene of the crime," Odumakin stated.
