According to reports, Bola Tinubu on Sunday, berated those profiling Fulani herdsmen, over the murder of Funke, daughter of Afenifere leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti. He lashed out at those stigmatizing the Fulani herdsmen, after he paid a condolence visit to the family of Fasoranti in Akure, Ondo state capital.
Reacting to allegation that Fulani herdsmen are behind the attack, he said kidnapping is not peculiar to any ethnic group or a particular set of people and also questioned if Evans is also a herdsman.
In seperate reactions, Femi Fani-Kayode and Reno Omokri called out Tinubu. FFK said, ‘I listened to Tinubu’s slurred speech and utter nonsense at Pa Fasoranti’s home. He was inconsiderate and insensitive. He was not there to mourn or commiserate with Pa, he was there to mock him, to pour salt in his wounds, to play politics and to speak for his Fulani masters’.
Reno Omokri on his part said, ‘I commend Bola Tinubu for paying a condolence visit to Afenifere leader, Pa Fasoranti, over the killing of his daughter by suspected herdsmen. Sadly, during the visit, Tinubu was more focused on defending herdsmen than on consoling the bereaved’.
