Members of the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF), have commiserated with the leader of the Yoruba pan socio-cultural and political organization, Afenifere, Chief Reuben Fasoranti over the gruesome murder of her daughter, Mrs. Funke Olakunri on Friday by gun men along Ondo-Ore road.
A statement from the Forum’s National President, Mallam Yerima Shettima, described the dastardly act as very sad, unacceptable and highly condemnable, adding that the government must step up security in the country to guarantee safety of lives and propertyof the citizenry.
Yerima wondered what could have cause the attack on such an innocent woman, who just earlier visited her old father at home to extend daughter’s care to her parent, stressing the need to put all hands on deck to secure the country for the benefit of the citizenry.
The youth leader, who challenged the government to ensure that the culprits should be fished out and punished, assured President Muhammadu Buhari of, “my members’ readiness to assist his administration in its quest to find a lasting solution to the securitychallenges in the country.”
According to Shettima, it is high time Nigerians, irrespective of their religious differences, political lineage, social status or ethnic diversities come together to put an end to the incessant threats to the security of lives and property in the country.
“It is not a gainsaying that the country can only progress in an atmosphere of peace,” asserting that, “no foreign investors would bring their money to invest in a country with security challenges.”
The AYCF then prayed God to rest the soul of the deceased and give Pa Fasoranti and the entire members of his family the fortitude to bear the loss.
