The Inspector-General of Police Special Forces and Policemen from the Ondo State Command, have moved into the forest in the State with the purpose of hunting for herdsmen, who allegedly killed Mrs Funke Olakunrin, a daughter of the Afenifere Leader, Chief Reuben Fasoranti.
The Ondo State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Femi Joseph, who gave this indication in an interview on Sunday night said that Policemen have been deployed into the forest in massive search for the herdsmen.
Recall that Olakunrin was killed on Friday at Kajola village in the Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State when gunmen ambushed vehicles along the Ore-Sagamu Expressway.
Assuring Nigerians that killers of Olakunrin will be fished out, Joseph said: “We are working with the IGP team. The more we are, the more successful we are. As I am talking to you now, our teams are in the bush and we have made some arrests, but we can’t disclose the number because we are still carrying out some investigations.
“We are combing the entire area. If we find anybody with suspicious movements, such a person will be arrested. We will not rest until all of them are flushed out . Our men are already in the forest in order to get the bandits.
“The work is going to be very comprehensive. Anybody doing any illegitimate work there will be arrested. We are all out now to flush out the criminals. This is not only taking place in the Odigbo Local Government Area, but also in all the 18 Local Government Areas of the State.”
The PDP has released a statement on the death of Mrs Olakunrin when it happened last Friday.
