The National leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu was on Sunday warned that he don't want a stigma because he can't go through history of kidnapping and how it all started in Nigeria. 

The death of Funke Fasoranti-Olakunrin, the daughter of Afenifere leader who was shot dead by Fulani herdsman while they attempted to kidnap her and three other occupants in the black land truser jeep marked Lagos number AAA 147 FM is a seriously sad and unacceptable to the family. 

He said that Nigeria has been facing insecurity for years now and we should not use this incident to divine this country as normal nobody can return Mrs Funke Olakunrin alive as she has answered the call of her creator. 

“I am extremely concerned about security, i don’t want a stigma, i can go through history of kidnapping in Nigeria and we know how and where it all started, there are a lot of copycats.”

“How many years ago have we face the insecurity in the country? There are cases of kidnapping, is Evans too who was arrested and made disclosures was also a herdsman?.

“I don’t want to be political, but i will ask where are the cows?

“I am a nationalist and the security concern and challenge right now must be face squarely throughout Nigeria.”

“The incident that affected one member of our family Mrs Olakunrin is seriously sad and unacceptable but nobody can return her alive, she has answered the call of her creator.“

“We must not use this incident to divide ourselves but we must use it as a cure to the security problem”

“Additional police, additional patrol, and additional security reinforcement along Ore road and various flash points across the country are necessary and i have discussed this among the various authorities. The Ondo state governor is eminently aware and being proactive about this.”

“The security challenges are numerous across this country and to fight it we are going through that, more police are being recruited and it takes time to train and deploy them to various areas, nobody prepares more than necessary for this.”

“But if you look at Zamfara, Osun, Ondo, Ekiti and all areas, then we need to fight poverty, unemployment and the causes that might lead people to crying.”

“Equally we must create opportunity to convert this tragedy to prosperity.”

Funke is very close to me and she died a premature death. Only four or five days ago, we chatted and i know what she discussed with me and about Baba’s health conditions.”

“We just pray that this will not happen again." he said.
