Ondo APC primaries: Boroffice calls for cancellation, rerun

Deputy Majority Leader of the Nigerian Senate, Ajayi Boroffice, has decried the spate of insecurity in Nigeria, saying he can no longer travel to his town in Ondo State, because of a kidnapping spot on the route that leads to his home town from Akure.

The senator who represents Ondo North, stated this when he went to Akure, the Ondo State capital to visit Reuben Fasoranti, the Afenifere leader, whose daughter, Funke Olakunrin, was killed by yet to be identified gunmen.

Speaking to newsmen after visiting to condole with the Afenifere leader, Boroffice said, “The government which I’m part of, should find a solution to this problem. The ordinary people in Ondo state will still carry out their businesses… you can’t ask them not to go out. In the Senate, we discuss this issue of insecurity on regular basis.

“I’m here in Akure now, I would have loved to go to Oka, my hometown but the fear is that how do I move from Akure to Oka because there is a spot near Oba where these people (kidnappers) are. So, this issue is affecting everybody.

“It’s not something that we should feel unconcerned about. We are all concerned and I believe there is something going on how to find a solution to this problem.”

Olakunrin was killed on Friday along Benin-Ore highway when she was returning to Lagos after visiting her father in Akure.
