Kehinde, a son of Afenifere leader Pa Reuben Fasoranti, has revealed that policemen told him that herdsmen killed his sister.
Mrs Funke Olakunrin was shot dead while traveling along Benin-Ore expressway last Friday.
According to the Commissioner of Police in Ondo State, Undie Adie, the identity of her killers are yet to be unraveled.
“All we know is that these are bandits that came to the road and started firing sporadically at motorists that were driving on the highway. That is what it is, there is no person that can say specifically that they were herdsmen. What we know is that they are bandits and we are going after them,” he said.
However, Kehinde stated that some police officers at the Ore station told him that his sister’s killers were herdsmen.
“We need to get the story straight. The way they operated, according to what the police said, is the way herdsmen operate,” he said.
“Six people were in front shooting at them. The driver put the car in reverse but unknown to him, some men were in the bush and started shooting from the side and at the back. The story that these are just bandits is a lie. If you want records, request the report I made at the Ore police station. They categorically said the attackers were herdsmen.”
