Former Deputy Clerk of the National Assembly, Chief Olayide Adelami, mni has condemned the attack on St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo describing it as devilish and unimaginable.
The APC Chieftain who said the Sunday terror attack at St Francis Catholic Church, Owaluwa Street, Owo was a crime against humanity charged all security agencies to leave no stone unturned in bringing the perpetrators of the dastardly act to book.
In a statement made available to newsmen, Adelami, who is the Amuwagboye of Owo kingdom, commiserated with the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Ondo, Jude Bishop Arogundade, the Olowo of Owo, His Imperial Majesty, Oba (Dr) Ajibade Gbadegesi Ogunoye III, Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN and the entire people of Owo, saying the long standing believe and tradition of “no war conquers Owo” will lead to the arrest of the attackers.
“This ugly attack without any provocation is least expected because Owo has been a very peaceful community before the terrorists disrupted the peace of the community. Concerned authorities must review and beef up the security architecture of Owo and the entire state, with emphasis on intelligence gathering to prevent any reoccurrence.”
Adelami thanked prominent Nigerians, traditional, religious, and political leaders who came have empathised or visited Owo to commiserate with the families of those who have lost their loved ones, admonishing people of faith to “remember the affected families in their payers for strength to bear the irreparable loss at this trying period”.
