The Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Agboola Ajayi, on Friday night led a government delegation to the residence of the leader of the pan-Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, in Akure.
The delegation was on a condolence visit to the elder statesman whose daughter was killed by gunmen at Ore junction in Ondo State.
Ajayi was accompanied by the Secretary to the State Government, Ifedayo Abegunde, and the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Olugbenga Ale.
The deputy governor, while sympathizing with the Afenifere leader, said the state government received the news of the death with shock.
While vowing that the perpetrators of the evil act would be brought to book, Ajayi disclosed that Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, had cut short his trip outside the state and will return home.
GCFRNG recalls that the murder of the daughter of the Pa Fasoranti’s daughter was confirmed by Afenifere’s spokesman, Mr. Yinka Odumakin in a statement.
He said 58-year-old Mrs. Olakunrin was killed by persons suspected to be herdsmen while heading to Ore Junction from Akure, Ondo State, where she was attacked and shot by her attackers.
But the Ondo state police command refuted Odumakin’s claim, saying it was an armed robbery attack.
