JUST IN: Yoruba group, others protest in Abuja over killing of Fasoranti’s daughter 

A group known as Yoruba Collectives and others, on Wednesday, staged a protest in Abuja over the “painful and gruesome killing” of Mrs Funke Olakunrin, daughter of leader of Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, Pa Fasonranti, by suspected Fulani herdsmen.

The group, however, warned the Presidency to take decisive actions on the prevailing killings by Fulani herdsmen, saying the incessant attacks on farmers and other Nigerians posed a serious food insecurity in the country.

It, therefore, demanded for “Justice, Restructuring, Security Overhaul,” as well as “End to Open Grazing and Massive Security Operatives in Bushes.”

The leader of the group, Comrade Ariyo-Dare Atoye, who addressed newsmen during the protest in Abuja, said President Muhammadu Buhari was elected as president of the nation and not only for a particular ethnic group.

The group used this year’s International Day of Justice with the theme: “If You Want Peace and Development, Work for Social Justice,” to appeal to Federal Government to address the issue
