Olakunrin’s Murder: Presidency Warns Against Politicising Killings

The Presidency has asked the political class to stop playing politics with the death of Mrs Funke Olakunrin, daughter of the Afenifere leader, Reuben Fasoranti.

A statement on Monday by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, asked leaders across the country to be mindful their language and its potential consequences.

The statement described Mrs Olakunrin’s murder as tragedy, describing insecurity as an issue that the people of the country must unite to tackle.

It added that tragedies like this should not spring up politics, stressing the need for those who stand in positions of influence to recognise and understand that.
