Former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan has reacted to the killing of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, daughter of Chief Reuben Fasoranti, Afenifere leader, by suspected herdsmen.

The Bayelsa-born elder statesman poured out his heart to the family of Pa Fasoranti, in a series of tweets on Saturday.

According to him, the untimely death of Mrs Olakunrin is a callous and heinous crime which must be investigated so that the perpetrators are fished out and prosecuted.

He wrote: “My heart goes out to Chief Reuben Fasoranti and his entire family over the untimely death of his daughter, Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, at the hands of suspected herdsmen.

“No one deserves to hear such news, not the least being Pa Fasoranti, a man that has given so much to Nigeria and asked so little.”

Jonathan said he was encouraged by the message of the chief security of the state, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo state, who had promised to fish out the perpetrators of the heinous and callous crime.

“I am encouraged by the message from the Governor of Ondo state and his assurances that those behind this heinous and callous crime will be brought to book,” Jonathan tweeted.

He went further to ask God to comfort the Fasoranti and Olakunrin families by giving them the fortitude to bear the loss while also praying that God returns peace to Nigeria.

The ex-president tweeted further: “Baba, may God comfort you and your family and grant you the fortitude to bear the loss, even as we pray that the Almighty returns peace to Nigeria.

“My family and I offer you our deepest solidarity now and always. We also extend our arm in love to Afenifere.”
