Fasoranti’s daughter: Police have abandoned investigation into killing, says family

Almost three months after the killing of Mrs Funke Olakunri, the daughter of the leader of the pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenirefe, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, the family of the deceased has said the police have abandoned investigation into the incident.

The eldest child of Fasoranti, Olufunmilayo, said this while speaking with Saturday Punch in an interview on Friday.

She said there was no indication that the police were doing any investigation on the matter, saying the family was not happy with the development.

She said, “We don’t know what the police are doing on the matter, I don’t think they are investigating the matter.

She said, “We heard that they were conducting an investigation but we didn’t see anything, they have not invited anybody. Even some of the people that were in the vehicle with my sister on that day were not invited by the police. The people inside the second vehicle, nobody invited them for interrogation.

“The driver that drove my sister, who initially ran away and came back, has not been invited. We that we are home here, they have not come or invited us for interrogation. So, I don’t know the kind of investigation the police are conducting on the matter. It’s almost three months now but nothing has happened.”
