Owo Catholic Church attack was aimed at the Governor- Afenifere

The Pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, said the attack on the Catholic Church in Owo town, Ondo State was a direct attack on the Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, as well as Yoruba land.

The Organising Secretary of the association, Apagun Kole Omololu, said in a statement, β€œThe massacre in Owo Chatholic church is a direct attack on Yoruba land.

β€œIt is directed at Governor Rotimi Akeredolu for his unflinching support for security in Yoruba land by championing the Amatekun security outfits, his stringent upholding of the open grazing law, and for his β€˜big mouth’ about Southern co-operation for equity and justice in Nigeria.

β€œWe will not succumb into terrorist threats or attack.

β€œThey will not be allowed to bring down our civilisation. We will hunt the killers down. Citizens should not take law into their own hands by attacking innocent northerners. Only the terrorists, who are mostly foreign Fulani, should be fished out and finish off by the security forces.

β€œThis attack is to cause confusion and cause war in our land. We should not play into their hands. This evil is condemned in the strongest term.

β€œWe commiserate with the government and people of Ondo state, the Catholic Church, the Olowo of Owo and the people of Owo. May the soul of the departed rest in peace.”
