Mr. Kehinde Fasoranti, younger brother of the deceased who spoke on behalf of the Fasoranti’s family has accused the police chief of lying regarding the identity of his sister’s murderer.
Kehinde told journalists that he visited the police station in Ore town shortly after the incident and was told by officers on duty that those who operated and shot Mrs. Olakunrin were Fulani herdsmen.
“We need to get the story straight. The way they operated, according to what the police said in Ore, is the way Fulani herdsmen operate.
“Six people were in front shooting at them. The driver put the car in reverse but unknown to him, some men were in the bush and started shooting from the side and at the back.
“The story that these are just bandits is a lie. If you want records, request the report I made at the Ore police station. They categorically said the attackers were Fulani herdsmen.
“It’s about time we stood up and fight back. Nobody is protecting us. Eventually, they will come inside the house and kidnap people.
“Enough is enough. We can’t continue like this. I want the police to retract what they said. They (attackers) are Fulani herdsmen,” he reiterated.
However, Undie Adie, Commissioner of Police in Ondo State on Saturday said all efforts were ongoing to apprehend the bandits that shot and killed Mrs. Olufunke Olakunrin, the daughter of Reuben Fasoranti, the leader of the Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere.
