OLAKUNRIN: NOA warns against unguided statements

The National Orientation Agency (NOA) on Monday warned Nigerians against unguided statements over the murder of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, daughter of Afenifere leader Pa Reuben Fasoranti.

The Director General of NOA Dr. Garba Abari explained, that every Nigerian must cultivate the habit of resolving crisis through civic and patriotic means, adding that criminal activities should be curbed by the citizens instead of fueling it.

He noted however, that security agencies are mandated, primarily, to investigate and prosecute offenders.

In a statement by the agency’s Press Unit head, Paul Odenyi, the DG condoled with the family of late Olakunri on behalf of the agency.

He stated: “As Nigerians continue to condemn the rising incidence of crime in the land, the NOA has appealed to Nigerians to allow security agencies the space to deal with the disturbing cases of banditry and armed robbery, rather than resorting to peddling political narratives and stereotypes.

“While condoling with the family of late Olakunri on behalf of the agency, the director-general said every Nigerian has a role in the process of resolving the spate of criminal activities through our civic and patriotic duties, noting however, that security agencies are mandated, primarily, to investigate and prosecute offenders.

“Abari urged political players to stop the dangerous name calling and stigmatisation and, as leaders, show more understanding and tolerance of the diverse people in the country in the spirit of shared humanity and a united nation.
