Owo Massacre: Gov. Akeredolu Gives Update, Reveals Number of Victims

Eighty persons were affected in Sunday’s attack on St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo, Ondo State, Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu in Akure on Tuesday.

The most unfortunate part is the lives of innocent children cut down in their prime and some severely injured by the mindless attackers,’’ Akeredolu said in a State broadcast.

He disclosed that, “The total number of people involved was 80. As of now, 56 are on admission, two discharged, while the death toll is 22. Efforts have been deepened to prevent further casualties.

“At Owo, the anger is palpable; the tension is at an abrasive level just as the urge for reprisals is high."
