Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the February 2019 presidential election, Atiku Abubakar, has condemned the killing of Funke Olakunrin, daughter of Afenifere chairman, Pa Reuben Fasoranti.
Mrs Olakunrin was fatally shot on Friday along the Ondo-Ore Road in Ondo State by suspected kidnappers.
In a message released on Friday night, Atiku described the killing as “one death too many”.
The message reads: “I condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the killing of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, daughter of Chief Reuben Fasoranti, the Chairman of Afenifere. This is one death too many.
“I call on the security services to initiate speedy and thorough investigations to bring her killers to book and stem the epidemic of insecurity in our land.
“My prayers and deep compassion go to Chief Reuben Fasoranti, his family and the entire membership of Afenifere.
“My family and I stand shoulder to shoulder with you at this trying time, even as we pray for the repose of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin’s soul.
“Peace must return to Nigeria, by every means possible. Enough of this. Enough of this!”
