Sequel to a terrorist attack early this morning, Ondo State Governor Rotimi Akeredolu urged people not to take the law into their own hands.
The FidelinfoNews learnt that the governor also stated that he has aborted his assignment with his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), to visit Owo right away.
Terrorists blew up St Francis Catholic Church in Owo, the capital of Ondo State’s Owo Local Government Area.
Following the explosion and shooting at the church, which is located near the Olowo of Owo’s palace, many worshippers died and several others were injured.
“I am deeply saddened by the unprovoked attack and killing of innocent people of Owo, worshiping at the St. Francis Catholic Church, Today. The vile and satanic attack is a calculated assault on the peace-loving people of Owo Kingdom who have enjoyed relative peace over the years,” Akeredolu said via Twitter.
“This is an unexpected development. I am shocked to say the least. Nevertheless, we shall commit every available resource to hunt down these assailants and make them pay. We shall never bow to the machinations of heartless elements in our resolves to rid our state of criminals
“I commiserate with my people in Owo, particularly families of the those who lost their lives to this ugly and unfortunate attack. I extend my condolences to Olowo of Owo, Oba Gbadegesin Ogunoye as well as the Catholic Church.
“I urge our people to remain calm and vigilant. Do not take laws into your hands. I have spoken to the heads of the security agencies. I have equally been assured that security operatives would be deployed to monitor and restore normalcy to Owo kingdom.”
