The daughter of Afenifere’s leader, Ruben Fasoranti, has been reported killed by Suspected Fulani Herdsmen at Ore.
Punch Newspapers had reported Yinka Odumakin, spokesperson of the Pan Yoruba Socio cultural group, as putting the dead squarely on Fulani herdsmen.
“We have confirmed the death of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin (58), daughter of our leader, Chief Fasoranti,” he was reported to have said.
“Witness accounts say she died of gunshots from herdsmen who shot her at Ore junction in Ondo state earlier today.
“She was coming from Akure when the armed 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”
This comes at a time the Ruga controversy has been ravaging the country, with Fulani youths threatening mayhem if Ruga is not implemented.
