Funke Olakunrin: YYF Urges Yoruba Leaders To Tackle Insecurity In Southwest .


The Yoruba Youth Forum (YYF) has condoled with the family of Yoruba
leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti over the killing of his daughter Funke
Olakunrin by suspected Fulani herdsmen along Benin-Ore road.
The Group in a press statement signed by its President, Comrade
Oluwasegun Abiodun Bolarinwa described the killing as evil and
callous, calling on Yoruba leaders to come together and tackle the
issue of insecurity posed by the activities of Fulani herdsmen in the
“Losing a child is one of the most tragic things that could happen to
anyone. A parent having their daughter taken away from them in a most
dastardly manner will no doubt experience pain that could possibly be
imagined but we pray to Almighty God to give the Fasorantis and the
entire Yoruba race the fortitude to bear the loss.”
The Group added: “The grief will be long lasting and change the lives
of the family involved forever but with God things will get back to
normal. There are no words that can explain the sorrow and pain that
the entire Yoruba nation feels for the loss of your daughter. She will
be greatly missed.”
Bolarinwa however urged Yoruba leaders to come together to tackle the
menace of Fulani herdsmen once and for all, saying that former
President Obasanjo had previously alerted the nation about the
‘Fulanisation’ of the entire country and which according to him many
Yoruba leaders were quick to call the former President names.
“Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has alerted us of this
‘Fulanisation’ thing. Some Yoruba leaders were the first to condemn
OBJ for his candid statement. As a Yoruba group, Yoruba Youth Forum,
YYF has also raised the alarm the many times in our many press
releases and write-ups, but some of our leaders who are benefiting
from the Fulani led government never took us serious. They even made
attempts to silence us for speaking the truth but God protected us.”
The Group however called on Inspector General of the Police and all
security agencies in the country to fish out the killers of Funke
“This is clearly the beginning of attacks on Yoruba people. The
murderers of Funke Olakunrin must be apprehended and brought to book.”
