•Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Adeyemi III

The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III, has warned the Federal Government that the killing of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, the daughter of Afenifere leader, Chief Reuben Fasoranti, may force each ethnic group in Nigeria to resort to self-help security which may not be in the interest of the country.

Oba Adeyemi made this known in a statement personally signed and entitled: “The killing of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, daughter of elder statesman, Chief Reuben Fasoranti, by unknown gunmen – a disgrace to Nigeria,” and made available to journalists on Tuesday.

The revered monarch said the killing has further put a question mark on the central police system currently in operation in the country, saying today’s leaders must review the issue of power decentralisation.

He said: “The killing of the daughter of the distinguished leader of Afenifere, Chief Reuben Fasoranti, by gunmen is certainly one too many.
