Akeredolu Reveals Perpetrators Of Ondo Church Attack





Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has revealed the culprits behind the gruesome murder of worshippers at St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo State.

Naija News earlier reported that unknown gunmen on Sunday attacked the catholic church and killed many worshippers just as the service was nearing its conclusion.

It was gathered that the gunmen detonated explosives before firing at the worshippers including women and children.

Speaking at the scene of the incident on Sunday afternoon, the governor said those behind the hideous attack are foreigners from Mali who trained in Libya.

Akeredolu, who described the attack as vile and satanic, promised that the perpetrators would be arrested soon.

The governor, however, urged residents of Owo and the state to keep calm and not take the laws into their hands.

He said, “What happened here is too tragic. It is the most tragic event. What is happening in America is a child’s play to what has happened here.

“To say the least, it is condemnable. I’m grieved. Let me let you know that we have a duty to protect you.

“Security services also lost about two men. The attack was sudden. How they carried out the attack and entered the church cannot be explained.

“Security agencies in the state must take all steps necessary because this must not repeat itself. On our own part, we must be vigilant. We take responsibility for what has happened.

“Most of those that are carrying out this attack are foreigners from Mali who were trained in Libya.
