Pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, is unhappy that Fulanis who allegedly killed  or kidnapped some of its people have not been exposed.

The group is particularly unhappy that the police was yet to make public its findings concerning the killing, last month, of Mrs Funke Olakunri, daughter of Afenifere leader, Pa Reuben Fasorant.

Afenifere, in a statement, signed by its spokesman, Yinka Odumakin said it would want the police to tell Nigerians what they have done with the investigation into the killing of Olakunri and with the various kidnap suspects arrested and paraded in Ogun, Osun and Oyo states.

It asked the police to tell Nigerians if the suspects had been released and on whose orders they were set free.

In the statement made available to newsmen, Afenifere said:  “It is over one month now that Mrs Funke Olakunri was killed around Ore area of Ondo State and Afenifere is compelled to bring to the public the shoddiness of police investigation into the matter.

“It is on record that Mr Kehinde Fasoranti, brother of the deceased, revealed that the police in Ore told him his sister was killed by herdsmen and challenged them to bring out the statement he made hours after the murder. This has not been denied till date and the statement has not been denied.

“We saw signs there was no interest in investigating the murder as the vehicle in which she was killed was returned to the family the day after the murder without any forensic examination. It took engagements with the force PPRO, Mr Frank Mba, for the police to go back for the car 7 days after the incident and even for autopsy to be done about two days to the burial.
