Odumakin said: “When they started with the kidnapping process, they started with Olu Falae, a prominent leader in Akure.

He also condemned the incessant attacks of herdsmen in the South-western part of Nigeria.
Narrating how the attack happened, Odumakin said: “Yes. Mrs Funke Olakunrin, 58-year-old, daughter of the leader of Afenifere was coming from Akure this morning (Friday) to Lagos.
