Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Saturday declared the country has been diminished by the killing of Mrs Funke Olakunri on Friday.
Mrs. Olakunri is the daughter of elder statesman leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti.
Obasanjo said the killing by suspected herdsmen was a worrisome development in the polity, especially, at a time when all well-meaning Nigerians are preaching tolerance and political accommodation.
In a condolence letter to Pa Fasoranti, which was made available to The Nation through his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Akinyemi, Obasanjo tasked the security agents to fish out those responsible for the heinous crime.
Obasanjo: “This is a worrisome development in our polity, especially, at a time when all well-meaning Nigerians are preaching tolerance and political accommodation in national politics.
“I must say Nigeria as a whole is diminished by the manner of Funke’s death.
“We deplore this dastardly act and seize this opportunity to call on governments at all levels to leave no stone unturned in ensuring that our security agents vigorously pursue and find the perpetrators of such heinous crime and make them face the full weight of the law.
