Following the killing of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, daughter of Afenifere’s leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, by suspected to be herdsmen in Ondo State, Southwest group, Yoruba Youth Socio-cultural Association (YYSA), expressed sock over the sad development.

In a statement signed by YYSA National President, Olalekan Hammed, the group gave the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN) a three-day ultimatum to fish out the perpetrators of the nefarious act.

The 58-year-old Mrs. Olakunrin was killed by persons suspected to be herdsmen while heading to Ore Junction from Akure, Ondo State, where she was attacked and shot by her attackers.

The YYSA said it will convene an emergency meeting on Saturday (today) to discuss next line of action after the ultimatum to MACBAN elapses.

The statement reads: “We receive the news of the sudden death of Mrs. Olakunrin with great shock.

“We want the federal government to order immediate investigation on the matter because the culprits should not go unpunished.

“We also give the so-called Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN), Ondo State chapter, three days to fish out the suspected killers of Mrs. Olakunrin.

“We are having an emergency meeting tomorrow (today) in Ibadan to discuss the next line of action.”
