Fasoranti’s Daughter: Nigeria may descend into anarchy, warns Ohanaeze

#TrackNigeria – The Ohanaeze Ndigbo has condoled with the leader of Afenifere,Pa  Pa Reuben Fasoranti  and the entire Yoruba over the killing of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin. Chief Nnia Nwodo,President General Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide,made this known in a statement sent to Newsdiaryonline.

According to Nwodo, “ Ohanaeze Ndigbo warns that this latest murder is capable of throwing our country into uncontrollable break down of law and order. The hasty conclusion by the Federal Government that she was killed by armed robbers and not the suspected herdsmen who are known to have laid siege on all parts of the country perpetrating  acts of banditry and killings further exacerbates  the already tense situation.” The text of Ohanaeze’s statement signed by Nwodo reads thus in full: “News reached Ohanaeze Ndigbo yesterday of the heartless murder of the daughter of Pa Reuben Fasoranti, Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, on her way from Ekiti to Lagos by suspected Fulani herdsmen. We offer Chief Fasoranti and the entire Yoruba the heartfelt sympathies of Ndigbo.

“The continuous  rampaging, plunder, rape, kidnapping and murder of innocent Nigerians by armed  Fulani herdsmen has climbed to a most worrisome crescendo. The inability of our Security Forces to disarm and prosecute these criminals gives credibility to a growing story of collusion.

“Recently, the British High Commission in an advisory to British citizens in Nigeria declared twenty-four of our states unsafe. In the midst of these killings, their parent organization has the effrontery to give ultimatums to the President of Nigeria to rescind his unpopular suspension, instead of cancellation of his RUGA development policy. Such inciting, provocative and treasonable outbursts have only been greeted by an advice that they should respect the Presidency and an unrelenting resolve to force Nigerians to accommodate such murderers in their homes under a policy that violates our constitution and all laws and court judgments relating to land use administration.

“Ohanaeze Ndigbo warns that this latest murder is capable of throwing our country into uncontrollable break down of law and order. The hasty conclusion by the Federal Government that she was killed by armed robbers and not the suspected herdsmen who are known to have laid siege on all parts of the country perpetrating  acts of banditry and killings further exacerbates  the already tense situation.

“We call on eminent leaders of this nation in spite of their political persuasions to come together in an urgent National Security Conference to discuss measures that will arrest the extant drift to lawlessness.”
