Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State and his wife, Betty Anyanwu Akeredolu, wept at the funeral mass for the victims of the terror attack at Saint Francis Catholic Church, Owaluwa, Owo.
Naija News reports that the governor and his wife wept uncontrollably during the burial service held on Friday at the Mydas Resort and Hotel, Owo.
Akeredolu disclosed that 22 victims would be buried, adding that a few of them have been buried because the relatives couldn’t wait till today.
The governor stated that the terror attack on the church is indescribable, dastardly and horrendous, adding that the government failed to protect the victims of the terror attack.
“When I see the sea of heads that are here it speaks volumes. What has happened to us in Owo in Ondo state is indescribable. A lot of words are used to qualify it. Dastardly, horrendous. But I still believe there are words to use to describe it but I am still short of those words.
“We have just 22 (deceased) in this hall. A few of them have been buried. Because the relatives couldn’t wait till today. But as at the last count, these animals came to the church and murdered 40 people.” Akeredolu said.
