The police command in Ondo, through its spokeman, Femi Joseph, has made it known that a yet to be identified man was kidnapped after gunmen killed Funke Olakunrin, daughter of Reuben Fasoranti, leader of Afenifere, pan-Yoruba socio-political group.

According to Joseph, the gunmen carried out the attack at about 2pm on Friday, he said three vehicles were involved in the incident.

“One woman named Funke Olakunrin was shot but died before our men could take her to the hospital. The woman was travelling in the Toyota Jeep,” he said.

“One man in another Toyota Camry Car was abducted by the gunmen. Our men have rescued seven men travelling in the commercial bus belonging to the Young Shall Grow Motors Limited. We have begun search for the man that was abducted and to get the hoodlums.”

Yinka Odumakin, Afenifere spokesman, said the murder of Olakunrin is declaration of war on the Youruba people.

He blamed it on suspected herdsmen.

“Whether deliberately or intentionally, this is clearly a declaration of war on the Yoruba. They shall hear from the Yoruba nation.”

Joseph, however, dismissed the position of Afenifere’s spokesperson, the police spokesman said that until arrest is done, the ethnicity of the attackers cannot be ascertained.
