OPC Issues 21 Days Ultimatum to Police to Fish Out Killers Of Fasoranti’s Daughter
The Oodua People’s Congress (OPC), a Yoruba socio-cultural group, has issued a 21-day ultimatum to the police and other security agencies to find the killers of Funke Olakunrin, daughter of Reuben Fasoranti, leader of the Afenifere.
Mrs Olakunrin was killed last Friday by masked gunmen along the Ore-Sagamu road.
Adeshina Akinpelu, national spokesperson of the OPC, said in a statement on Thursday, July 18, upon expiration of the ultimatum, members of the group would take their own action and ensure that bandits are chased out of the south west.
Akinpelu said, “Time has come for us to act now. We will no longer fold our hands and allow herdsmen to continue to kill us like cows. We cannot continue to use the blood of our people to keep Nigeria’s unity. We are giving the police and other security agencies 21-day ultimatum to fish out the killers of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin.
“Failure to fish out the killers, we will have no option than to take the destiny of our people in our hands and drive out all criminally-minded Fulani herdsmen, their accomplices among the Yoruba and other tribes perpetrating crimes in Yoruba land,” Akinpelu threatened.
