The statement signed by Mr Femi Adesina, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, added that “The President prayed that God will comfort Pa Fasoranti, and give him the fortitude to bear the grievous loss.

“He also directed security agencies to swing into action, and bring the hoodlums to justice in the shortest possible time.”

Also, former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has condemned the killing of Pa Fasoranti’s daughter.

Atiku in a series of tweet on Friday called on the security services to initiate speedy and thorough investigations to bring the killer of the 58-year-old woman to book.
