Former President Goodluck Jonathan has condemned the murder of Funke Olakunrin, daughter of Afenifere’s National Leader, Reuben Fasoranti.

Jonathan, during a condolence visit to Fasoranti at his Ondo State residence on Tuesday, said Olakunrin’s death was painful and an act of terrorism.

He described the killing of innocent Nigerians as an act of terrorism, noted that the rate was becoming worrisome.

“Every generation of human being faces problems and that generation must find ways of solving that problem,” the former president said.

He added, “Every government faces some unique problems. Insecurity has been with us immediately after the civil war.

“That was the first time we experienced armed robbery in Lagos. From armed robbery, it graduated to kidnapping.”

The former president called for the setting up of a separate government agency that will handle the security challenges facing Nigeria.

He traced the history of criminal activities in Nigeria, saying, “The first major kidnapping was described as commercial kidnapping because some money exchanged hands. This happened in 2006 when I was governor of Bayelsa State.

“From commercial kidnapping, it moved to terrorism in the North and now some kind of terrorist attacks are all over the country when people will just come out of the road and spray bullets on innocent people. That is a terrorist attack.

“You have no reason to attack somebody you don’t even know, that is terrorism.”

According to him, every generation and government usually face various challenges which would need to be tackled with diverse approaches.

He called for collaboration between the Federal and the state governments to address the incessant killings in the country. (Channels TV)
