Chairman of the party, Mr Tunde Adeniran, made the call in a statement Monday in Akure by two members of the party in the state, Mr Ebenezer Adeniyan and Mrs Oluwaseun Osamaye.

Adeniran described the murder of Mrs Funke Olakunrin, daughter of Afenifere Leader, Chief Reuben Fasoranti, by suspected herdsmen as “one-death-too-many and unacceptable’’.

He called on the Federal Government to intensify action to ensure that the perpetrators of the dastardly act were brought to justice without delay.

He reiterated the urgent need for Buhari and the security agencies to deploy more resources to combating perpetrators of violence in the country.
