Afenifere leaders on Monday praised the dedication and gallantry of officers of the Nigeria Police over the recent arrest of some suspected killers of the daughter of Afenifere leader, Pa Fasoranti.
Mrs Funke Olakunrin was brutally murdered around Ore, Ondo State, last year on her way to Lagos.
Afenifere spokesperson, Yinka Odumakin, said the arrest showed the group would carefully follow the case to its conclusion.
His statement reads:
“Nine months after she was brutally murdered , the SARS in Ondo state has arrested four suspects in the killing of Mrs Funke Olakunrin, the daughter of our Leader Chief R. F Fasoranti.
“Three out of the four suspects arrested so far are from the northern part of the country. They are said to have made useful confessions to the police.
“We commend the dedicated officers who made the arrest just as we wait for a thorough investigation to follow.
We have resolved to encourage the police to do their job properly.
“We appreciate all Nigerians who have encouraged our 94-year-old Leader in this troubling season.
It is our prayer that criminals will not go unpunished again in our country.”
