Sequel to the shocking death of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, who was murdered in cold blood by suspected Fulani herdsmen, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, has assured Nigerians that the killers of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, the daughter of the Leader of the Pan-Yoruba Socio-Cultural organisation, Afenifere, Chief Reuben Fasorantin, will certainly be found and made to face the full weight of the Law.
In a Press statement sent to TOS TV, the IGP noted that the Ondo State Police Command, backed by Special Forces and seasoned Investigators from the Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID), the Intelligence Response Team (IRT), and the Technical Intelligence Unit (TIU), have been deployed from the Force Headquarters, Abuja, to commence a massive manhunt for the killers, with a view to tracking, arresting, and bringing them to justice.
The IGP, condemning the heinous and barbaric crime, said that measures have been put in place to prevent a future occurrence of such incidence, as he has ordered the total overhaul of security architecture on the highways straddling the Southern part of the country.
The Press release, signed by Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), DCP, Frank Mba, read in part: “The Commissioners of Police in the affected States were ordered by the IGP, to emplace adequate security arrangement in their areas of jurisdiction (AOR).
“He equally assures the nation that the Force Headquarters has perfected plans to replicate the special security arrangement powered by “Operation Puff Adder”, currently ongoing in the Kaduna – Abuja expressway, in key highways in the Southern part of the country.
“The IGP further reiterates the fact that the Force will not rest on its oars, until sanity is restored in every nook and cranny of the country.
“He therefore, calls for calm and support from all Nigerians, especially residents of Ondo State, in aid of the current investigation”, the IGP said.
