Nigeria: Fulani Monarch Condoles with Fasoranti, Afenifere Leader over Daughter’s Death
London, July 15, 2019 (AltAfrica)-Sarkin Fulani of Lagos and Chairman, Association of Fulani Chiefs, South-West Nigeria, Alhaji Mohammed Bambado has condoled with the leader of the Pan-Yoruba Socio-Cultural and Political Organization, Afenifere , Pa Reuben Fasoranti over the killing last Friday of his daughter, Mrs Funke Olakurin by unknown assailants.
The deceased was returning to her base after visiting her father in Owo in Ondo state, South-Western axis of the country when the dastardly act was committed.
The concerned Fulani monarch, who doubles as the Sarkin Fulani of Lagos State in a condolence message made available to the media in Lagos, described the killing as, dastardly, condemnable and unacceptable, stressing the need for the security agencies to fish out the criminals and bring them to book.
“Our dear father, I, on behalf of the entire Fulani Community in the entire south-west of Nigeria share your grief and pray the almighty Allah to console you and rest the soul of the deceased,” the Fulani community leader prayed.
Bambado seized the opportunity to task the Federal Government to put all the security agencies on red alert with a view to stopping the rampant killings all over the country, warning however against politicising the security challenges in the country or pointing accusing fingers at any of the ethic nationalities in the country as the culprits.
According to him, jumping into the conclusion that such undesirable act of killings came from a particular ethnic group even before the Police investigation would further polarise the country along ethnic groups which he said would not do the country any good.
