Is Evans a herdsman? – Tinubu speaks on the murder of Fasoranti’s daughter

Jagaban of Lagos state, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu speaks on the murder of Fasoranti’s daughter.

The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has said those blaming herdsmen for the death of Funke Olakurin, the daughter of Reuben Fasoranti, do not have evidence to support it. While speaking during his condolence visit to the deceased’s family in Akure, Tinubu, said kidnapping is not a peculiar thing to any ethnic group in Nigeria, The Cable reports.

When he was asked to react to the allegation that herdsmen were behind the attack.

He said:

“I am extremely concerned about security but I don’t want the stigma. I can go through the history of kidnapping and we know how it started, where it all started, there are a lot of copycats, how many years ago have we faced insecurity in this country and cases of kidnapping? Is Evans a herdsman?” It should be noted that Evans is a high profile suspect for various cases of kidnapping in the country. He has been in detention as there is an ongoing court case against him.

He also offered special prayers to the family during his visit, while urging for a total solution to the security crisis in the nation.
