President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed sadness over the the killing of Funke Olakunrin, daughter of Reuben Fasoranti, a leader of Afenifere, a socio-cultural group in the South-West region.

Mrs Olakunrin was reportedly killed by herdsmen on Friday evening but Mr Buhari has dismissed the crime as having been committed by herders who are recently accused as arrowheads of insecurity in the country.

In condoling Mr Fasoranti, the Nigerian leader said those who killed the lady are said to be armed robbers, according to Ondo state Police command.

“President Muhammadu Buhari condoles with Afenifere leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, whose daughter, Mrs Funke Olakunrin was killed along Ondo-Ore road by those described as armed robbers by Ondo Police Command. He prays God to give Pa Fasoranti fortitude to bear the loss,” Femi Adesina, presidential spokesman, said in a statement on Friday evening.
