Ondo government Friday docked four men suspected to be the killers of Funke Olakunrin, the daughter of the national leader of Afenifere.

Among the accused were Lawal Mazaje from the Felele area of Kogi State and Adamu Adamu from Jada area of Adamawa State.

Others are Mohammed Usman from Illela area of Sokoto State and Auwal Abubakar from Shinkafi area of Zamfara State.

The suspects were arraigned at a Chief Magistrate Court in Akure, the capital, a week after the police announced their arrest.

Funke was killed last year at Kajola, on the Ondo-Ore Road, by people said to be Fulani marauders.

But last week, police said they have recorded a breakthrough with the men’s arrest.

Police spokesman DCP Frank Mba said the police had established sufficient physical and forensic evidence against the suspects
