Ondo church massacre: UK govt reacts to killing of Christians while worshiping


The British Government has condemned the heinous killing of worshippers on Sunday at the St Francis Catholic Church, Owa-luwa Street, Owo Kingdom, in Ondo State.


Recall that not less than 25 worshippers were killed by herdsmen who attacked the church at Owo.


A top official of the Catholic church in Ondo State put the number of those killed at 25.


It was gathered that many worshippers died and several others were injured in what looked like a bomb attack on the St. Xavier Catholic Church.


Reacting, Catriona Laing, the British High Commissioner to Nigeria, on Twitter, while condemning the attack extended her sympathies to the victims and their families.


She tweeted, “Terrible news today from Owo in Ondo State. I condemn those responsible for this horrific crime. I extend my sympathies to all those affected.”
