The debate was prompted by the recent killing of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, daughter of Afenifere leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti.

Afenifere spokesperson, Yinka Odumakin had confirmed to the media the involvement of Fulani herdsmen in her death, while Ondo state police command claims she was killed by kidnappers along Benin-Ore road on Friday.

The mention of the Fulani group remains a subject of controversy; while some agree they are the culprits owing to numerous other crimes the group had been associated with, others simple argue against.
