The Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has vowed to crackdown the killers of Mrs Funke Olakunrin, daughter of the leader of the Pan-Yoruba Socio-Cultural Organisation, Afenifere(Reuben Fasorantin).
IGP Adamu on Saturday ordered the deployment of special forces to key highways in the southwestern part of Nigeria to replicate the special “Operation Puff Adder” currently ongoing along the Kaduna- Abuja expressway.
In a statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, DCP, Frank Mba, stated that the IGP also directed the Ondo State Police Command, backed by Special Forces and Seasoned Investigators from the Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID), the Intelligence Response Team (IRT) and the Technical Intelligence Unit (TIU) from the force headquarters, Abuja, to begin a massive search for the killers.
“The Ondo state police command, backed by special forces and seasoned investigators from the Force Criminal Investigation Department, the Intelligence Response Team and the Technical Intelligence Unit deployed from the force headquarters, Abuja, on his directives, have already commenced a massive manhunt for the killers with a view to tracking, arresting and bringing them to justice.
“In this vein, the Commissioners of Police in the affected States were ordered by the IGP to emplace adequate security arrangement in their areas of jurisdiction (AOR). He equally assures the nation that the Force Headquarters has perfected plans to replicate the special security arrangement powered by “Operation Puff Adder” currently ongoing in Kaduna- Abuja expressway in key highways in the Southern part of the country.
“The IGP further reiterated the fact that the Force will not rest on its oars until sanity is restored in every nook and cranny of the country.
He, therefore, called for calm and support from all Nigerians, especially residents of Ondo State, in aid of the current investigation”.
Olakunrin was said to have been shot dead while she was travelling along the Benin-Ore Expressway at about 2:00 pm on Friday.
