Atiku via his Facebook page condemned the act and called on the perpetuators to be brought to book.
In his words, “I condemn, in the strongest possible term, 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 a speedy and thorough investigation to bring her killers to book and stem the epidemic of insecurity on 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.”
