Mrs Funke Fasoranti-Olakunrin, daughter for the Afenifere leader; Chief Reuben Fasoranti, was killed by suspected kidnappers/herdsmen along the Benin-Ore expressway on her to Akure from Lagos, on Friday. The 58-year-old was murdered in her car as the suspected gunmen also attacked other travellers along the road.
The National leader of the All Progressives Peoples Congress (APC). Ashiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, visited the family of the deceased to pay a condolence visit. During the visit, the leader mentioned that the attack was not from the Fulani herdsmen as he emphasized that the origin of kidnapping can be traced in the country.
In a reaction to this, Femi Fani-Kayode, the former Minister of Aviation said the comments made by the leader were insensitive and inconsiderate. He said;
“Listened to Tinubu’s slurred speech and utter nonsense at Pa Fasoranti’s home. He was inconsiderate and insensitive.
“He was not there to mourn or commiserate with Pa, he was there to mock him, to pour salt in his wounds, to play politics and to speak for his Fulani masters.
“What have the kidnapper Evans or the Igbo got to do with the targeting and assassination of Olakunrin? And why the obscene determination and desperate hurry to absolve the Fulani of this hideous crime?
“He may not believe that they did it but why would he rule it out completely.
“Does he know something that we do not know? Is he an expert when it comes to assassination, homicide and murder matters? Does he know who the killers are? Why the rush to tell us who it wasn’t? Can’t he at least wait for the police to conclude their so-called investigation?
“Even for a confirmed quisling and desperate serf this time Tinubu has gone too far. Funke has not even been buried yet and he is already pissing all over her bullet-riddled body. Tinubu has sold his soul to the devil and his conscience to the north
“He has become a slave to his ambition and a plague to his people. He is a shameless soul and wicked old man who is ready to sacrifice anyone and anything to become President. I make this pronouncement today: as long as Jesus sits on the throne he will fail woefully.”
