The Chairman of Ondo chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Fr. Anselm Ologunwa, has reacted to the arrest of some suspects in the terrorist attack on St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo.

Naija News reports that the Ondo State Commander of Amotekun, Adetunji Adeleye, had disclosed that some suspects connected to the church attack have been apprehended.

He made this known on Thursday during a parade of 71 criminals arrested across the state at the corps’ headquarters in Akure, the state capital.

Adeleye also disclosed that the command recovered some weapons and vehicles used to perpetrate the terror attack on the church on June 5.

He, however, did not give the actual figure of the suspected terrorists arrested but expressed assurance that all the attackers of the church would be apprehended.

Recall that gunmen stormed the Catholic church located on Owa-Iuwa Street, killing over 40 persons and injuring 70 others during a Sunday mass.

Reacting to the development, Ologunwa said he is not aware of the arrest of some suspects in the terrorist attack on the Catholic Church in Owo.

The CAN official, in an interview with The Punch, urged Nigerians to be patient and wait for the full details of the matter before expressing their views.

He said, “I don’t have such information and I can’t comment on the matter. I will implore us to be patient, let us have the details of the matter.”
