Afenifere leader, Reuben Fasoranti, has said he never knew Friday would be the last day that he would see his daughter, Funke Olakunrin, who was shot dead along Benin-Ore highway.

Olakunrin, 58, was heading to Lagos from Akure, the Ondo state capital, when suspected herdsmen targeted her vehicle.

Her driver was said to have made a U-turn in an attempt to escape, but the attackers aimed at her and she died on her way to the hospital.

Fasoranti, while receiving dignitaries at his Akure residence, called on the federal government to check the high rate of crime in the country.

“She came to me around 9am on Friday to bid me farewell. I never thought I would not see her again.

“President Muhammadu Buhari has called to commiserate with me. But all I need from the president is to find solutions to these killings in the country,” he said.
