Police Have 21 Days To Fish Out Killers Of Fasoranti’s Daughter -OPC

Published

on



The Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), the New Era faction, has issued a 21-day ultimatum to the Nigeria Police Force and other security agencies in the country to fish out the killers of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, the daughter of Afenifere leader, Pa. Reuben Fasoranti.

Mrs Olakunrin was killed last Friday by masked gunmen along the Ore-Sagamu road.

However, in a statement issued by its spokesman, Adeshina Akinpelu, the OPC New Era said failure to find the killers after the ultimatum, its members will embark on an operation to drive out all the criminals amongst Fulani herdsmen, their accomplices among Yoruba and other tribes who are perpetrating all manner of evils in all Yoruba-speaking states.

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.

The group, while accusing Fulani oligarchy of alleged plan to re-capture Yorubaland after failing in previous attempts in the past, stated that it would resist any attempt to cajole and silence Yoruba leaders for voicing their opinion on insecurity in the country.

“We are aware that this is part of the grand conspiracy of the Fulani oligarchy to re-capture Yoruba land after failing in previous attempts in the past.

“These Fulani were responsible for the fall of first and second Oyo empires through cunning methods. Their third attempt which was real war was met with stiff resistance from the Yoruba people who drove them back after they reached Osogbo.

“The killing of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin is a part of a grand conspiracy of the Fulani oligarchy to silence some of our leaders from speaking the truth and making critical appraisal of President Muhammadu Buhari’s government,” he said.

Akinpelu, however, stated further that the OPC was not in any way surprised by the Miyetti Allah’s call for the arrest of Obasanjo, disclosing that they have a great supporter in President Buhari.
