According to the statement issued by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, Garba Shehu in Abuja cautioned against relating the shocking death of Olakunri to politics.

”It is incumbent on all leaders across the country to consider their language and its potential consequences.
”Insecurity is an issue that Nigeria must face together as one nation – united.

”Times of a tragedy like this is not the time for politics. It reveals only disrespect for the departed and her family.
