A former governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, yesterday said Nigerians may be pushed to seeking alternative means of protecting themselves if governments are complacent in tackling insecurity in the country.



He said this while reacting to the killing of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, the daughter of Afenifere leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, by suspected Fulani herdsmen on Friday.



In a statement by his media officer, Ayo Giwa, the former governor bemoaned the growing insecurity in the land which, according to him, calls for immediate and lasting solution.



This came as Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State yesterday called for urgent measures to tackle the challenge of insecurity in Nigeria. Akeredolu gave the advice in Akure while speaking with newsmen during a condolence visit to the residence of Chief Reuben Fasoranti


The Chairman of Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF), and Governor of Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi in his reaction described the killing of Mrs. Olakunrin as a loss not only to the Yoruba race but the country as a whole.


Also, former Governor of Ondo State, Dr. Segun Mimiko, who paid a condolence visit to the family on Saturday, said: “This is despicably disturbing and this is another very challenging situation in our country. We must collectively rise to this challenge. Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, in a statement, described the killing as a dastardly act that should be probed.
