The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has said those blaming herdsmen for the death of Funke Olakurin, the daughter of Reuben Fasoranti, do not have evidence to support it.
While speaking during his condolence visit to the deceased’s family in Akure, Tinubu, said kidnapping is not a peculiar thing to any ethnic group in the nation, The Cable reports.
When he was asked to react to the allegation that herdsmen were behind the attack, he said he is very concerned about the security situation in the country, saying he could go into the whole history of kidnapping in the country.
He said: “I am extremely concerned about security but I don’t want stigma. I can go through history of kidnapping and we know how it started, where it all started, there are lot of copycats, how many years ago have we faced insecurity in this country and cases of kidnapping? Is Evans a herdsman?”
