Fasten your seat belts – Fayose tells Nigerians on unabated insecurity

Ayodele Fayose, former governor of Ekiti State, has urged Nigerians to fasten their seat belts over the insecurity ravaging the country.

Mr Fayose gave the advise while reacting to the dead of Funke Olakunrin, daughter of Reuben Fasoranti, leader of Afenifere, Pan-Yoruba socio-cultural group.

Mrs Olakunrin was reportedly killed on Friday, while journeying back to Lagos State from Ondo State, where she went to see her dad.

Gunmen suspected to be herdsmen came out from the bush to attack the vehicle in which the victim was in, an attempt to escape by reversing the said Toyota Land Cruiser Jeep angered the attackers who opened fire on their target killing the lady.

The rise in insecurity across the country has largely been attributed to herdsmen as arrowheads of the criminal activities, although the pastoralists have been exonerated in the recent killing of Olakunrin.

While herders and farmers clashes is yet to end, kidnappings, killings and other crimes have continued unabated with security agencies failing to bring the culprits to book.

Consoling Mr Fasoranti over the loss of his daughter, the former governor said he had warned Nigerians re-electing President Muhammadu Buhari whose administration winds down in 2023.

“Nigerians, may God save us in this “Next Level” of Killings, Kidnappings, Joblessness, Poverty, Cluelessness and Recession…Fasten your Seat Belts. Remember I warned against Sai Buhari! Mo ke to o!” Mr Fayose said in a tweet on Monday.

“Baba Fasoranti, I sympathise with you and other Nigerians. God will console you,” the politician added.
