Pa Reuben Fasoranti, Afenifere leader, says he never knew Friday would be the last day that he would see Funke Olakunrin, his daughter who was shot dead along Benin-Ore highway.
Olakunrin, 58, was heading to Lagos from Akure, Ondo state capital when suspected kidnappers targeted her vehicle.
According to reports, her driver made a U-turn in an attempt to escape but the attackers aimed at her and she died on her way to the hospital.

Speaking while receiving dignitaries at his Akure residence, the nonagenarian asked the federal government to check the high rate of crime in the country. He said:
She came to me around 9 am on Friday to bid me farewell. I never thought I would not see her again. President Muhammadu Buhari has called to commiserate with me. But all I need from the president is to find solutions to these killings in the country
