Bola Ahmed Tinubu has come under fire for the speech he made concerning the death of Funke Olakunrin, who was the daughter of Reuben Fasoranti, the leader of the Yoruba group, Afenifere.
It was alleged that she was killed by Fulani herdsmen, although the PPRO of Ondo state police, Femi Joseph, debunked the rumour and stated that it was a case of robbery.
Bola Tinubu, in his condolence speech, had stated that it was ‘destined that it was her time to go’. Also debunking that her death was caused by Fulani Herdsmen, Tinubu insisted that cows were not sighted at the spot of the incident and advised people not to make it political.
