We’re still recuperating from pains of Owo terror attack – Akeredolu



Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has referred to the terror attack in Owo on June 5, 2022, as a tragic event that devastated both the government and people of the state.


Akeredolu stated that the state would always remember the tragedy that occurred in Owo Kingdom when innocent worshippers were attacked at St. Francis Catholic Church.


The Governor in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde, reflected on the massacre that took place a year ago, which resulted in the death of 41 individuals and numerous injuries.


He lamented that the workers of evil invaded the peaceful land of Owo land and ended the lives of innocent worshippers, causing a black Sunday.


The Governor acknowledged that even one year later, they were still grieving over the incident, and the scars of the heavy blow inflicted on them would always remind them of their losses and the pain they had endured.


He described the attack as a brutal act that could occur in any society, with the Church of God being desecrated and turned into a slaughter slab.
