Afenifere Urges Police To Go After Olakunrin’s Killers

Afenifere, a factional Pan-Yoruba group, on Tuesday, called the police to unravel the killers of Mrs Funke Olakunrin.

The group after a meeting released a statement to express its displeasure on why the Nigeria Police Force is yet to find the killers of the daughter of the group after seven months of the gruesome murder.

“We are left with no option at this stage but to conclude that she was a victim of political assassination necessitating state cover-up,” the group said.

Speaking further, Afenifere challenged the police to do their job on the matter in spite of their disappointment with them.

As part of the move to nab the murderers, the group said it would invoke Olakubrin’s spirit to remain restless until her killers and mastermind of her death are brought before justice.

The deceased was last year killed by unknown gunmen at Ore-Akure Road while heading to Lagos from Akure after visiting her father, Pa Fasoranti, the leader of Afenifere group.
