“Tinubu has sold his soul to the devil” – Femi Fani-Kayode

Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has shared his thoughts on the former Governor of Lagos state, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s speech at Pa Reuben Fasoranti’s home.

The former minister said “Tinubu has sold his soul to the devil and his conscience to the north” following an unexpected content of Tinubu’s speech.

FFK went to his Twitter page to share his thoughts with his followers.

Read Femi Fani-Kayode’s full statement below…

“I listened to Tinubu’s slurred speech and utter nonsense at Pa Fasoranti’s home. He was inconsiderate and insensitive. He was not there to mourn or commiserate with Pa, he was there to mock him, to pour salt in his wounds, to play politics and to speak for his Fulani masters.

“What have the kidnapper Evans or the Igbo got to do with the targetting and assasination of Olakunrin?And why the obscene determination and desperate hurry to absolve the Fulani of this hideous crime?He may not believe that they did it but why would he rule it out completly?

“Does he know something that we do not know? Is he an expert when it comes to assasination, homicide and murder matters? Does he know who the killers are? Why the rush to tell us who it wasn’t? Can’t he at least wait for the police to conclude their so-called investigation?

“Even for a confirmed quisling and desperate serf this time Tinubu has gone too far. Funke has not even been buried yet and he is already pissing all over her bullet-riddled body. Tinubu has sold his soul to the devil and his conscience to the north.

“He has become a slave to his ambition and a plague to his people. He is a shameless soul and wicked old man who is ready to sacrifice anyone and anything to become President.

“I make this pronouncement today: as long as Jesus sits on the throne he will fail woefully.”

REVEALED! How Funke Olakunrin died

Earlier, The Pace News reported that Funke Olakunrin, the daughter of Afenifere leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, was reportedly shot dead along Kajola-Ore in Ondo State on Friday, July 12.

Ondo State police command spokesman, Femi Joseph, on Saturday, July 13, revealed how some kidnappers killed Funke on Friday.

According to Premium Times, Joseph admitted his ignorance of Funke’s identity as Fasoranti’s daughter.

Joseph narrates Funke’s murder: “It happened at a spot between Kajola and Ore, where some hoodlums numbering about 15, attacked two vehicles, one Toyota Land Cruiser and one Camry.

“The the Land Cruiser was carrying five passengers, including the deceased, which we later identified as one Funke Olakunrin. They shot the woman, we rushed her to the hospital, but we lost her.

“Other four occupants that were abducted, we have rescued them. Inside the Camry too, we had three occupants, they were also abducted, but we have rescued them. We have rescued a total of seven persons taken during the attack.

“There is still one person left that we are still looking for, and we are working frantically to ensure that the hoodlums are brought to justice and ensure any other hostage were rescued.”

Joseph furthered that the identity and ethnicity of the attackers cannot be confirmed until the arrest is done, as he dismissed Afenifere’s spokesperson, Yinka Odumakin that Fulani herdsmen killed Funke.

Joseph told journalists while responding to Odumakin’s claim: “No, you can’t shave the head of a man in his absence. You have to wait for us to arrest them. Somebody you have not arrested, it is difficult for you to establish his ethnicity.”

The police said three vehicles were attacked by the kidnappers and that one of the passengers, Gerald Igboroka was yet to be found by the police.

The deceased was in the United States to celebrate her grandaughter’s 1-year birthday a week to her death.
