on

Former Governor of Anambra and Presidential Aspirant, Peter Obi has condemned 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.

Reacting to the attack, Peter Obi in a post on Twitter, commiserated with the Governor and citizens of Ondo State.

He added that all hands must be joined together in saving the country from existential situations.

Peter Obi wrote, “What happened in Owo today again adds to my position that our country is fast becoming a failed state. All must now join hands in saving our country from this existential situation we find ourselves in today.

“I sympathise with the victims’ families, the Catholic Diocese of Ondo, the people and the Government of Ondo State. I urge the Federal Government and Ondo State Government to do whatever is possible to ensure that perpetrators of the dastardly act are brought to book.”
