Senator Ayo Fasanmi, the leader of Afenifere, has charged Yoruba people to unite in order to stop the incessant killings and kidnappings currently raging some parts of the south-west and Nigeria at large.
The elder statesman, while condemning the tragic killing of Pa Reuben Fasoranti’s daughter, Mrs Olufunke Olakunrin by gunmen suspected to be herdsmen on Ore express road, said it is unfortunate that innocent people are being killed like cows on a daily basis, owing to insecurity in the country.
He stressed that Yoruba people must come together, no matter their political affiliations and differences to address the scourge of kidnapping by suspected herdsmen who have already infiltrated the South-West.
“It is a big tragedy for Nigeria. Pa Reuben Fasoranti is a man that I have known for the past 70 years. He is one of the best friends I ever had and his politics is without bitterness. His policy is that politics should not divide those God has joined together. What has happened is a big tragedy, not only for the people of Akure or Ondo State but to the whole of Nigeria.
“There is no adequate security in Nigeria. A situation where somebody will be killed like a cow is unacceptable; we are not cows. There is no respect for the sanctity of life and there is a lot to be done to ensure the security of the lives of people. In recent times, a lot of people have been killed in Yoruba land. Yoruba people, irrespective of their political affiliations, must come together and save the nation from an imminent catastrophe.”
