Chief Olusola Oke bemoans massacre of Owo church worshippers


The news of massacre of innocent worshipers at Owo Catholic church by suspected terrorists leaving many worshipers dead while others sustained gun injury was one attack too many on the people of Owo and Ondo state.

I, Chief Olusola Oke, SAN condemned in strong term, the gruesome attack describing it as an attack on humanity.

I sympathize with the victims of the attack, their bereaved families, governor of Ondo State, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, Kabiyesi, Olowo of Owo and the people of Owo on the unfortunate incident.

Today, Sunday 5th of June, some terrorists have unleashed gruesome attack on innocent worshipers in Owo leaving many people in the church dead and others injured

The peaceful town of Owo has been polluted by the murderous action of these agents of darkness. The place of worship by any religion is a dwelling place of God. These jackals have in their usual character brought violence into the alter of God.

My mind is with the people of Owo, a peaceful and serene town, the bereaved family, our ever responsive governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN, Olowo of Owo and the people of Ondo state.

I am consoled by the resolve of the state government that these agents of darkness will not go unpunished. I strongly belief the hands of the law will caught up with them. It is indeed a dark day here”

I enjoin us all to be more vigilant and to be conscious of our security in other to forestall a repeat of this unfortunate incident”
