National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has described the killing of Mrs Funke Olakunrin as sad and unacceptable.

He said this when he led a delegation on a condolence visit to the Akure residence of Pa Reuben Fasoranti on the death of his daughter.

Tinubu who spoke to journalists after the visit advised that the incident should unite the Yoruba race and not be allowed to divide the people.

“The incident that affected one member of our family, Mrs Olakunrin is seriously sad and unacceptable, but nobody can return her life, she has answered the call, be it Christian or Muslim, we all accepted that it is certain we are going to die one day, we don’t know which date.

“But we must not use this incident to divide ourselves, we must use it as a cure to the security problem.”
